    Is there a way to access the individual files within a TimeMachine backup that is stored on a cloud service?

    I am storing my TimeMachine backup on a WD My Cloud hard drive. When I go to, I can see the "iMac.sparsebundle" folder. However, I would like access to the individual files within it.

    Nope... not going to work. You will need to download the sparse bundle image locally to be able to open it.
