Yes, exactly. My Scrivener backup folder, along with all the other data on my PC***, is synced to OneDrive. No fuss, no muss, completely passive. (***Except for my live Scrivener projects, which sync to DropBox.)

Wouldn't it be easier to just install the Google Drive "Backup and Sync" software, and point your Scrivener backups settings to the sync on your hard drive?

Yea, my practice is about the same as AmberV and JimRac, in that I have Scrivener preferences set up so that backups (which are all zipped) go to a folder that is synchronised to the cloud (OneDrive at the moment). But in addition to that I have Time Machine backups, and I also use BackBlaze.

I'm using Tresorit too.

But whatever cloud service you pick—the automatic backup to zip feature of Scrivener and the options to chose when to backup and how many backups you want to keep keeps you from all the hassle once you have set it up.
