Owncloud in general syncs content to your clients (data is on the server and on the client). You can directly mount storage as network drive via webdav.

In order to archive and backup data (rsnapshot, rsync, ...), there are a lot of tools on linux that allow you do do this but there is no such function in owncloud itself. There are some NAS distributions (e.g. openmediavault) but I don't if they have some automated routines for that.

Passwords of owncloud can be changed by admin users.
