    I sync my work to 3 local harddrives, one of them is a RPi with owncloud and an external harddrive. I'm also paranoid that my house might burn down and destroy my harddrives, so I also sync it to a cloud Drive and GitHub. Just a bit paranoid.

    Most file sync services have a history
    But that's what you get for not using versioning (git)

    @Creep And in the end you'll get paranoid about github's backup in Svalbard not working out...

    Just use git. If you only have one branch and two users it shouldn't be problematic.

    We've all been there, a few even without being able to restore anything!

    What you should do now ist take a good long look at git and then start using it!
