Hah! I use NextCloud Box! $130 bucks or so and I have a local cloud backup. Be forewarned though, once you sync a folder from your computer, NextCloud considers ITSELF the master, and unchecking a subfolder in that folder structure will DELETE THAT SUBFOLDER FROM YOUR DESKTOP!!!!! Suck! 

Much discussion has been had and there is a very long thread about having an option to NOT auto-delete unchecked items. The devs seem a little defensive about it. They seem to think this is how all cloud based mirroring works or ought to work anyway. 

Still, it makes a decent unattended versioning local backup.
