BT Cloud and Macbook Time Machine Backup - Possible?

Hi guys,

 

Now BT has increased the free BT Cloud space from 50gb to 500gb for infinity customers, I'd like to back up my mac off site via time machine. I can't see an easy way to do this. Is it possible?

 

I can do a time machine backup to my Synlogy NAS but the macbook Bt Cloud Sync folder is on the mac. Obviously I can't backup time machine onto my macbook drive as there isn't space. Is there a way of moving this folder to the Synology NAS? (then I could do a time machine backup to that folder).

 

I know on a PC you could use mklink to create a hard link to a NAS in the Bt Cloud Sync folder (and so put a hard link to a time machine backup in the Bt Cloud Sync folder). However can this be done on a mac?

 

Thanks for the help.

Can't see any way to do this either. Don't think it's possible. Only way would be to link your home (user) folder to BT Cloud, under settings I think.
