    I found a way to put your iPhone backups on the external drive, but how do you find the Library folder to get to the Application Support?

    In Finder, click "Go" in the menu bar and press the "Option" key. "Library" will show up in the drop down list and you're on your way.

    Will this also work on WiFi (My Cloud) external drive?
    Is the name of the external drive same as the one that appears on the left pane on the Finder?

    On my iMac I just back up Time Machine to the external HD and all are there. That's all I use the HD for.

    256gb may fill up quick. I think mine is 1tb. Not sure as my son gave it to me. iMac does delete old ones though as drive fills up. I don't remember size of first back up.
