Adding Cloud Storage Devices to Backups for Laptop Backup

This procedure applies to Windows and Macintosh Laptop Backups only.

You can back up data that is synced to a local disk from certain cloud storage devices such as OneDrive, Dropbox, GoogleDrive, EdgeDrive, and iCloudDrive.


  1. From the CommCell Console, expand Client Computers > client > File System > backup_set.
  2. Right-click the subclient and click Properties.
  3. In the Subclient Properties dialog box, click the Content tab, and then click Add Paths.
  4. In the Add Multiple Contents dialog box:
    • For OneDrive, type %OneDrive%.
    • For Dropbox, type %Dropbox%.
    • For GoogleDrive, type %GoogleDrive%.
    • For EdgeDrive, type %EdgeDrive%.
    • For iCloudDrive, type %iCloudDrive%.
    • For Home, type %Home%.

      Alternately, click Browse, and select the required storage device. For example, to select OneDrive, select OneDrive from the list.

      Note: To allow end-users to view and add the cloud storage devices as content using the Web Console, create the showCloudAppsMonikerContent GlobalParam on the Web Console computer. You must restart the Tomcat Service after you create the GlobalParam.

  5. Click OK.
