    Since I added a little more cloud space with iCloud, I thought I would switch to the new iCloud.

    But I've got a couple questions before I do.

    1. Will everything currently on my iCloud be moved over to the new one automagically??

    2. And is iCloud drive working now on more than just Macs and iPhones/iPads, like from Windows machines??

    3. I realize that my iPad won't be able to use it yet for the data, but what about backups from the iPad to the cloud??

    1. I believe so.
    2. iCloud Drive is working in beta on Windows and on beta.iCloud.com
    3. I'm not sure. But I assume you wouldn't be able to access it as it says that the older iCloud isn't compatible... but not sure if thats the same for backups.

    1. Yes
    2. The beta version of iCloud control panel for windows is in beta at the moment with iCloud drive functionality.
    3. You will not lose any backup data. The backup data is separate.
