Just plant an alias of User>Library>Mobile Documents on your desktop and you're good to go. This folder is just like the Dropbox Folder, anything you put in it is backed up remotely by iCloud and can be accessed by any other Mac logged onto the same iCloud account.

Your iCloud folder already appears in the sidebar & in the Home folder with Yosemite. This app is essentially obsolete with Yosemite.

You don't need it to. Go to ~/Library/Application Support/iLifeAssetManagement/assets/sub and Search for jpeg, hit the + , select Kind is Image All, deleting the search term above. Save As Photostream, check Add to Sidebar. Same with sub-shared, save as Shared Photostream.

Zo219 thanks a lot - indeed a missing feature which I don't understand why apple is not providing this "photostream" option by default.

In addition there are several little apps out that show you the photostream, if you prefer not to go thru the Saved Search rigamarole. Search here.

Hi Zo219, by "Search here" you mean ? I found only "MyPhotostream" which is a $7 shareware but not too many responses there.

Just spent most of an hour trying to get this to work. No folder was created. No success. Checked out all folders with variations of "drop cloud" in them with File Buddy which searches all folders, even invisible ones. No success. I think I will go back to the alias suggesting using the app Obscurity and password protected formats to remotely backup critical files in case my machine dies.

All Public Folders for every users have a dropbox. That does mean the product is or is not working. The issue is if it appears on iCloud when you examine your iCloud account with your Safari. I did a test and it did not for me.

@Jimw: That's actually what I thought, but I'm often wrong :) There's no box in my iCloud account either and I'm running OS 10.8.2 on the most recent Macbook Pro.

iCloud has always been somewhat confusing to me, especially with its piecemeal release and limited documentation. Today I did some investigation of it, and to the best of my knowledge (I could be wrong), here is a summary of what I have learned about it. When Apple switched from MobileMe to iCloud they changed the entire paradigm of the service. iCloud is generally no longer designed to support an individual Mac user. Instead it is primary designed to support IOS devices. Forget about everything you knew or liked about Mobile Me. It no longer exists or only exists in limited functionality, iCloud can only be used to backup files from Apple Apps or 3rd party Apps designed to interface with iCloud. It cannot provide remote storage for any other files. It cannot be used for long term backup of photos; only transferring to IOS devices. If it does backup an unsupported user file through a trick, and I am not sure it does, it cannot be seen on the iCloud website. It is invisible. So in a nutshell, while iCloud may be great for users on a Mac network for transferring files, or to support IOS devices, it is next to useless for an individual Mac user unless they are using a supported Apple App, such as iWork. Even if you are using a 3rd party App that supports iCloud, the file will not appear when iCloud is viewed from the Web, but only from within the 3rd party App. This means you cannot browse the contents of iCloud from the web to verify files from 3rd party apps are present. Frankly as an individual user with no IOS devices, I have given up on iCloud. I was hoping to use it for off site storage for critical files but that does not seem possible. So I have resorted to Microsoft's Skydrive which does allow this. It also provides a basic storage allotment for free. For once, Microsoft has done something right!

Contrarily to what said in point 1, in the window I see "Get DropCloud", not "Get DropBox"!

There are some apps which allow you to see the contents of your iOS device and upload files to it. Maybe such a device has a similar iCloud folder you can access. I don't know because I've never tried it. Fool around with such an app, you might get lucky.

An additional possible fix from https://discussions.apple.com/message/19374567#19374567 type in a terminal window: sudo nano /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.ubd.plist enter your password and then change KeepAlive RunAtLoad to true Then type the two commands launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.ubd.plist launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.ubd.plist The ubd process stay alive even if the Terminal is no more running. In case of a system reboot, a possible way would be to put the unix command launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.ubd.plist in a Applescript that is in the Applications to be launched at the startup.

It works fine with Lion 1.7.3 and above too with the fix I gave above. I checked also the reboot works fine (Lion 10.7.5). So Lion or Mountain Lion, it's the same ! By the way, no need of the application DropCloud to have the iCloud dropBox-like facility. It just helps to create the local directory in Mobile Documents, and create a link in the side bar. Nothing else !
