Can iCloud backup my iTunes library file automatically?

    My iTunes library is pretty big and I have around 500 playlists and playlist folders. If my Mac was to ever break beyond repair, id hate to loose all of this years hard work.

    100% of my MP3s are stored on separate removable hard drive so I am not worried about loosing them.

    My question is though, is there anyway I can utilise my new iCloud account to back up the iTunes library files (which I guess would also contain my iPhone backups?) as regular as my iPhone contacts list / iCal synchronises?

    Not the way you are describing since iCloud does not back up folders or files on a directed basis. Your better bet is to invest in something like Crashplan or some other backup solution. What about just getting a time machine drive?

    Okay thanks yeah, I do use a Time Machine Backup, but was just exploring the possibilities of iCloud, and that answers a few questions, cheers!
