I use OneDrive mainly. Used to use Dropbox but Office 365 is the same price for 5TB and not 1TB. Plus you get the Office Suite thrown in.

Yeah OneDrive's really good, and to boot they're adding support for offline files starting with the next Windows 10 update, meaning that you can see whopping archives and manage them, but they're not physically on your drives, which is what you need.

External hard drive for most of my pics and other stuff but I personally think its a con to back up on external sites as I have to date not been unable to retrieve lost files from broken hard drives and if your PC fails you can always retrieve stuff if you know how. its a money making scheme to fill your drives with backups and run out of space or having to buy online storage. my opinion.

Knowing IT systems and the weak link in IT systems (humans), I would never trust online storage that I don't control for critical/personal data.
I have a personal NAS that after very careful config, I can access from the internet using an encrypted tunnel.

Backup software is always a bit of a grey area. At work we use VEEAM but that would be completely OTT for personal use. Instead, I just backup my files into Office 365. Benefit of that is I can access them on my iPhone.
