    Could I upload the backups on OneDrive (and delete from my computer) and then later download it back when I need it?

    You could.

    How many do you need? You can delete old ones in iTunes Preferences.

    I think I could save 30GB or more if I put all my backups online.
    I thought old ones were automatically overwritten with the newest version?

    How do you locate the backups when you click upload on OneDrive?

    Or delete them entirely and back up to iCloud?

    I found a guide somewhere that allows my backups to be stored on external SSD. Forwards the folder. I'd say I would link you to help, but was compilation of several online topics about it. Turned off auto backup and run when hard drive is plugged in and phone.
