    Hi all
    Apologies if this is an obvious or already answered question...
    I have a MacBook Pro and a 1 TB external hard drive full of photos and videos. My iTunes library is on my MacBook Pro internal hard drive.
    I use Time Machine and back everything up to a separate 2 GB hard drive, but i would like to be able to back up to cloud to protect against loss through theft/fire.
    I am paying for iCloud/drive storage (which I'm using for backups of my iPhone) but haven't figured out how i can back up my iTunes library to the cloud plus also backing up my external hard drive. Is it possible to do this or do I need another kind of solution?
    Many thanks!

    I think what you would need to do is periodically upload all of the changed files to iCloud. iCloud does not have a time machine like backup feature. You can upload files to your iCloud dive on
