Our iPad cloud storage application, that becomes even more resourceful when linked to a Windows/Mac PC account, is a great way of securing and viewing all of your personal and business-related files, if you’re at home or on vacation, away for business, or anyplace else on the globe.

You might already be acquainted with carrying out camera roll backup and photo/video syncing from reading our previous guides (if you’re scratching your head, you can always take a look back through our news articles).

What about carrying out a PC backup remotely from your iPad cloud storage application, though? And also checking essential settings of your account? Do you know about those features?
