Mark Weinrib writes in with a question about his 500GB iMovie Library file, which he has stored on an external drive.

I back it up using Time Machine, but I would like to have another backup option. I don’t have 500GB free space on my Mac, so Dropbox doesn’t look like an option. iCloud Drive has a 15GB limit on file size so that won’t work.

The iMovie Library file is really a package: a sort of folder that contains stuff you don’t typically need to access directly, and which should move together whenever you need to move the main file. So iCloud wouldn’t count it as one monolithic 500GB file, but rather would handle each component as a separate piece.
