One way to backup your files is to the cloud


I haven’t tried this yet, but I am seriously considering it. I already use AWS for other things, so it might be time to see if I can archive old files that I rarely use but don’t want to delete. I don’t feel like getting more hardware, and I don’t have much confidence in Apple’s iCloud. So this might be the solution: ​How to Use Amazon Glacier as a Dirt Cheap Backup Solution.

And if I go that route, I will need tools. This article should give me the information  I need for that: The Best Tools for Uploading Files to Amazon Glacier – Digital Inspiration.

Dealing with an iPad saying “iCloud Backup This iPad hasnt been backed up in 5 weeks”

If you get a message on you iPad saying “iCloud Backup   This iPad hasn’t been backed up in 5 weeks”, then doing what that link says might help. Try it first.

If it doesn’t — and it didn’t for me — try this. I connected my iPad to my computer. I started iTunes. I did a backup to iCloud. I then did a restore from iCloud. The problem went away.

P.S. Thanks for reading this. If you have found it useful and you’d like to say thanks by buying me a coffee, you can do so here. Thanks! That’s awesome!
