How to backup in iCloud


This is a method to copy data saved in iCloud.
If you are saving MyInventory's data file to iCloud, the MyInventory folder will be created in iCloud Drive.



The renewal edition and the Viewer edition refer to the files in this folder. You can backup by copying these data to the other storage. Restoration can be done simply by copying the evacuated data to this folder.
To iCloud Drive you can access with iCloud Drive application before iOS 11, "File" application from iOS 11, Finder on MAC. There is iCloud on the web version, so you can access it on Windows too. https://www.icloud.com/




When using iCloud for migration of old data





Notes on iCloud

iCloud automatically synchronizes files on the cloud and device, so sharing between devices, cloud management of data etc. is convenient. Synchronization cannot be completed due to simultaneous handling of the target file and time lag to synchronization, and it may create duplicate files. The files whose serial number 2, 3 ... is attached to the filename are duplicate files without synchronization. These are not handled by this app. It can not be deleted, so you will need to deal with it yourself. Also, even though the custom icon image has been deleted in the MyInventory app, it remains on iCloud. Even if there is a custom icon image that is not in use, there is no hindrance to the operation of the app, but please delete the file on iCloud by yourself if it is unnecessary.
