Can I back up information straight to icloud instead of an external hard drive.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    iCloud on your mac is not a backup solution.  It's for syncing between devices.  It will contain certain information, for example, mail (from an icloud account), contacts and calendars, but you should continue to backup to an external drive.
