Backup for my hard drive and cloud: Is there one program to rule them all?

Can you help this reader find his perfect solution

Readers' corner And so to El Reg Forums, where Monkeyfish has fired up the following thread:

I've been looking at using Google Drive to backup photos and such, should the house burn down. I already use an external HDD for local backups, but do it manually. I'm looking for some recommendations for software that would handle backing up files to the external drive and a cloud service.

But I'd like to stay away from using, say, Google’s own drive software, because I might decide to use Dropbox, or MS, or whoever (or utilise all of the above for maximum storage). I want a single backup program to rule them all, and running in Win7, please.

Any ideas? Please head this way. ®
