I went through about 20-30 different backup/sync solutions to find the ultimate secure set-it-and-forget solution... Only thing which fit the bill is SpiderOak as it's the only secure service where everything also works!

Pros and Cons

Pros
Extremely secure due to zero knowledge approach
Quite fast upload/download speeds compared to competition
Nice features including sync, share and backup (obviously)
Did I mention I like the security of the service!
Multi device and multi computer!
Cons
Once the program deleted all of my data from one of my computers due to screw up in sync. However customer service was extremely fast to reply. After the initial problem sync has worked flawlessy though.

The price is a bit higher than competition but I'm happy to pay for the added security + features.
