Time Capsule and OneDrive


I've recently been thinking about Office 365 and Microsofts offer of 1TB of storage and wanted to know if its possible to sync a Time Capsule for the Mac with Microsofts OneDrive rather than storing the files on the computer hard drive. ?

IF the onedrive is mounted then you can use sync and cron with a script.
Please refer to the below link
Microsoft's offer of 1TB is a rather empty offer. You are limited to 20,000 files and there are many characters you can't use in your file names. OneDrive is problematic. It is unreliable and stops syncing for no apparent reason. I would strongly recommend you save yourself a lot of grief and look at another cloud storage solution such as DropBox or Copy.com.

Hmm that's interesting. The only problem is it starts to get messy having third party storage all over the place.

It is not possible to use cloud-type storage for a TimeMachine backup at present... it either needs to be a USB/Thunderbolt external hard drive or a NAS or similar network volume located on the local network.

I've never heard anyone getting TimeMachine to work with Dropbox, OneDrive or any other similar cloud-type storage.
