I am a Mac user who used to benefit much from the Genius Bar in America. Now I relocated to elsewhere without the support and I know so little what to do right now.
A couple of months ago, I made a lot of change to my Macintosh' directories. I sent most of the archives to iCloud and removed them from the hard drive. Then I bought another laptop so that I can install Windows, the OS needed to run the particulars of South Korean web browsers. Also my Mac was aging (bought 2012, MacBook Pro).
I was able to locate the iCloud section on my sidebar and check the contents I need are there. But is it something sustainable?
The problem of its not synching with my new laptop properly still persists though. The model it is not synching to is MSI GS63 7RD stealth, although I think Windows is causing the problem. Domestic customer contact commented that it sometimes doesn't sync well with non-macOS environment, and that was it.
Inquiry in sum:
- I would like to ask if anyone restored data using iCloud Drive in a non-MacOS environment with success. If it is even possible.
- I mean iCloud Drive by the storage service that you pay monthly. I started the service expecting it could be used in place of external hard drive for backup.. or is it not how it should be used?
I currently use macOS High Sierra 10.13.2
