Is it possible to backup Microsoft Office files in iCloud?

Also, since iDisk is gone, how do I find my files across each device?

Thanks.

Well the really only "files" you have would be your documents which would be saved and accessible via the Pages, Keynote, or Numbers apps.

On the Word documents, I haven't tested it out but according to this post today you should be able to:

Download your documents to a Mac or PC at icloud.com/iwork as Pages 09, Word, or PDF files.

Cool. I use Microsoft Office the most, so I was hoping you'd be able to sync those.

Right now, no.

You can only manually download files from the cloud to your Mac, and then open them with MS Office. It's a tedious workflow.

The cloud is NOT like an iDisk in the sky, unfortunately.
