ChronoSync equivalent for Windows/ Backup Software

As I am working equally on both platforms, I've always found that the Mac has better options in terms of backing up and folder syncing.

I am looking for a Windows alternative to Chronosync, basically, an app that allows me to sync two folders when I choose and give me options about deletions, syncing and and copying.
I've tried SyncToy from Microsoft but it is very primitive and it has many bugs, especially, a very nasty memory leak bug.

The second thing is Backup software: I've tried Acronis in the past but it let me down several time when I needed it. For example it rendered one of my backups useless and had to re-install from scratch. I really have no confidence with it.

Last version I tried was Acronis 2014, however, I am not sure if it's any better now.
I've started using Paragon, but unfortunately it's painfully slow to the point that a full backup can take one day to complete. When I emailed their support they replied like this is normal.

What do you guys use? Any reliable solution?
