Apple iCloud is used to store files and backup settings for macOS and iOS devices. It is configured during setup or via System Preferences. However, iCloud is not approved for storing UNCG data.

To ensure compliance with University data storage policies, all Mac users should disable the Desktop & Documents Folders selection of iCloud Storage. Please refer to Using iCloud for macOS Backup for more details and instructions on how to disable this option.

Please see Data Storage – University Requirements for more information on approved data storage options.
