I’m a heavy person of iCloud Drive to synchronise my recordsdata throughout my iOS and Mac gadgets. It really works properly nevertheless I’d prefer to have an automated approach to keep offline backups of my iCloud information. Partially to not be dependant on apples servers but additionally to have backups of iCloud in case I delete one thing and it will get eliminated in all places.
Since iCloud is simply accessible on Mac, I’ve an previous Mac Mini acts as a server and constantly sync with iCloud and again it self up each hour utilizing time machine. This fashion (in a great world) I’d have hourly time machine backs up of my iCloud Drive and picture library with out intervention. That’s means I could make a change on my telephone and it mechanically will get synced through iCloud and backed up offline by the mac mini.
Presently I’ve optimised storage disabled on the macmini in order that it shops all the pieces domestically. Nevertheless the Mac mini often doesn’t sync. For instance the picture library solely syncs when the pictures app is open and generally recordsdata aren’t synced till I really manually check out them. Is there a approach to, on a daily schedule, and even higher programatically, power iCloud to sync? I do know there is not an official characteristic however I am in search of a kludge like holding pictures app open or iterating by means of the recordsdata?
Or maybe a greater thought to mechanically make offline backups of iCloud all-together?
