I have OneDrive on my Mac because I want to have full interaction and integration with Office 365. The downside to this is that anything backed up into OneDrive will not back up into iCloud.

Is there a way to have both iCloud and OneDrive back up the same source? I would say using hardlinks, but they are no longer viable in the APFS format.

I would remove OneDrive if Auto Saving was possible though Office without using OneDrive.

    Just thinking out aloud here, but can I suggest it may be worth explaining why you want to be able to have your Office files also synced to iCloud? The reasons for doing this are not obvious and while we don't necessarily need to understand why you're asking a question, in this case it may help ensure you get better answers or suggestions to help you achieve your ultimate goal.

  • What do you mean by backup? Do you have your Office files within OneDrive and want to regularly copy them to iCloud Drive? Should this be a one-way copy or a bidirectional sync?
