Answer:
Answer:

iCloud is a syncing service, not a backup service for computers. You need to use Time Machine or a clone to properly backup your computer. You can sync your Documents folder and Desktop to iCloud, but it isn't a true backup.


To sync your Documents folder and Desktop to iCloud Drive, go to System Preferences/iCloud/iCloud Drive/Options and check syncing.


IOS


To sync IOS devices, go to Settings/Your Name/iCloud, sign in, and turn syncing on for the desired data.
