      I have a new 2019 iMac and had issues with Carbonite restore and interfacing with Mojave so I removed Carbonite. I am looking for a replacement online iCloud backup. I want a recommendation from someone who is satisfied with their iCloud backup working with the Mojave operating system.

      A program called “Get Backup Pro” should work for you.

      A Fuller,

      I am a novice when it comes to the Mac computers. I could not purchase “Get Backup Pro” in the Apple Store and not comfortable going out of the Apple ecosystem for apps/software after Carbonite restore issues. I think I wil just use Time machine since it is part of the Apple system.

      I hope you understand. Again thanks for your recommendation.

      Hi MUTigerFan,

      I use and have had great experience with IDrive… But, If you want to backup to iCloud, you’re probably going to want to use iCloud Drive. To have space on iCloud for your backup, you’re almost definitely going to have to upgrade your storage plan from the free 5GB if you haven’t already. (50GB- $0.99/month; 200GB- $2.99/month; 2TB- $9.99/month) You can upgrade through one of your Apple devices. You should enable everything under (Mac) Settings>iCloud>iCloud Drive- Options for the most comprehensive backup. This includes the “Desktop and Documents Folders” section. Anything else you’d like to backup you can drag into the iCloud Drive folder in the finder.

      I hope this helped, and feel free to ask if you have any more questions.

      –Jake
