    Exclamation Moving the iCloud folder to an external harddrive??

    Since having file backups on the same drive as your OS, takes up a lot of unnecessary space (not really improving system performance either)... I prefer having my iCloud folder on an external harddrive instead.
    Can anyone explain me how to do this?

    - The same can be done with Dropbox, which I already have installed on my external harddrive... so I assume this can also be done with iCloud??
    (both are cloud services, so it shouldn't NEED to be on your OS drive --> software wise there's not much difference between the 2)

    I'm not sure if you can, but I can't say for certain. Hopefully, some who can will reply soon.
