(H) Click on the Backup icon. This will start your initial cloud backup.
So, what did you just back up? All your good stuff!
Dolly Drive, by default, backs up your everything in your User Folder. This includes everything in Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos, Downloads and more. (And yes, it includes your iPhoto, iMovie, & iTunes files!).
At this point, your status bar should look something like the image below.
Keep in mind, the bar in the image shows 43 files changed, similar to a typical incremental backup. The initial backup you’re doing now probably includes thousands of files based going up to our cloud center. So be patient…it’s working.
