If you backup to a clone, what is fastest way to grab an previous file. It's harder with stuff kept in the cloud, you just can't easily find that.

Just mount the drive and copy the file back? I don't understand the question.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Think figured it out. For stuff in icloud, on your backupHD:

users, name, library, mobile document, com~apple~CloudDocs

Lot to burrow through to find that backup file if you are keeping it in the cloud....
