    I would like to incrementally backup my documents (in total about 1,5 Gb) to iCloud Drive.

    Does anyone know an advisable software to smoothy perform this task?

    Thanks a lot,

    Carbon Copy Cloner should do what you want quite well. You would have an exact up to date clone of your documents. I do this for one tiny folder to back up to MS OneDrive... and I have mine configured to do this hourly. It takes less than a second to run.

    You can also set up CCC to keep old revisions if you want (important to protect against inadvertent deletion... or file corruption). It is not a true "roll back the clock" solution like Time Machine... but for individual files, it could be useful.

    Synkron might do what you need. I have been using it to do incremental backups to flash drives for a long time.
