Maybe I'm missing the point here, but I use Syncplicity to backup my Googledocs data onto my own Mac. Cost is precisely zero. So far (6 months) no probs.
That is a fair question. Syncplicity and CloudPull are designed to solve two different problems.
The goal of Syncplicity is to synchronize files between multiple computers and Google Docs. The goal of CloudPull is to ensure that you have a local backup of your Google Apps data on your Mac. While you may be able to use Syncplicity to back up Google Docs, I think CloudPull offers more with regard to backup:
- * In addition to backing up Google Docs, CloudPull backs up Google Calendars, Google Contacts, Google Reader subscriptions, and Google Reader saved articles.
- * CloudPull supports multiple Google accounts.
- * CloudPull works with any type of Google account.
- * CloudPull maintains backups of deleted items and old versions.
- * CloudPull retrieves your data directly from Google using a secure connection, and stores your backups on your Mac.
If your goal is to synchronize documents between computers and Google Docs, Syncplicity is probably suitable. CloudPull protects you from things that can go wrong with online services (outages, data loss, hacked accounts) by backing up your data to your Mac.
Full disclosure: I am the author of CloudPull.
