Crashplan offers the possibility to "seed" your backup with HDD the first time as these backup can be huge (mine is 4Tb).

That's obviously what the "sync" is all about!
Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive works just the same.

Note that there is a non-cloud solution to sync computers and smartphones called Resilio (formely Bitorrent Sync). It works directly between computer with P2P without having to pass through a cloud. This not only insure privacy, but it is unlimited and much faster.
