Default Sycing folders to cloud

Im trying to find a way to sync different folders to different cloud services.

For example i am using Dropbox to stream music So i would like to sync my music folder and my public music folder to drop box. I would like to sync my Documents to google drive,, and so on. On android there are apps that allow you to do this. Are there any free desktop applications that allow me to do this?

Because at the minute all the music in the Public folder and the music in My Music folder I also have to copy to a folder inside the allocated dropbox folder So i have the same music twice on my computer using up space.

Any ideas?

I use folder synchronization software to do something similar. I prefer FreeFileSynch which allows you to create batch files to run multiple synchronizations that you have setup beforehand.

I should have added that I use SkyDrive with an Office365 subscription.

Originally, I used FreeFileSync to sync files directly to SkyDrive. But now I have two computers (my desktop and laptop) where SkyDrive syncs the files to local folders so I can work on either PC. I then use FreeFileSync to keep a separate copy or backup of the SkyDrive files on the desktop computer just in case I accidentally delete a file and SkyDrive syncs it out of existence before I realize my mistake.

I also have files in other locations on my desktop PC which are selectively synced with SkyDrive using FreeFileSync. For example, only some of my photos and videos are put on SkyDrive.

I don't have any problem syncing to Google Drive. Just download the app and it installs shortcut folders to your desktop. You can add and remove from those folders and they will sync.
