Data Backup, Hosting and Synchronisation (Updated)

What are the best, free solutions and services for backing up data, hosting files, and synchronising on multiple computers?

Hosting online

See this blog about cloud storage and pricings.

Local Backup
See this blog for recommend backup programs for both imaging and local files.

If you have other computers you could backup to and do it manually, then FTP using FileZilla or Beyond Compare also works well, but you'll likely need to port forward the addresses on your home router, and you may need to use Dynamic DNS as well.
