    Hey guys,

    I'm wondering if it is possible to use a different service as the receiving cloud server for my iPhone backups? I would like to find a way, either a new app, or a workaround with the Existing iCloud software, to be able to store an ENCRYPTED backup of my iPhone to Amazon cloud, and be able to do delta backups after the initial backup. I would also like to do this with my Mac if possible..............

    After much googling, I don't have much in the way of answers, so I'm hoping that maybe one of you guys would know if this is possible? Or if you've done it already?

    Thanks all!

    Nope, can't be done I'm afraid. You can store encrypted backups on your Mac via iTunes, and back up your Mac to where ever you want.

    How about place your iTunes backup file on encrypted disk image? You could back up to Amazon just not changes

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies,

    I just realized that I have already moved my iTunes backup location to an external disk (it was ~100GB of space on a pricey 1tb PCIE, not having that lol) I wonder if theres a cloud service app that can mimic an external drive, but not actually store the data on the hard drive as an alternative to what would be ideal?

    ExpanDrive plus your cloud provider of choice.
