In the "~/Library/Logs" folder, I discovered a folder called "Ubiquity", but I have no such app named "ubiquity" on my MacBook Pro.

I Googled and also searched here (Ask Different), but all references to "ubiquity" seem to relate wifi or iCloud syncing, and my MBP has had issues with both, so I am curious what Ubiquity is.

FWIW: I began looking into the Logs folder because a message popped up to warn me of junk files that I should remove-by upgrading some software. There is indeed a huge number of files, but Ubiquity is the only name I didn't recognize and can't associate with any software.

    Which version of macOS/OS X are you running on your MacBook Pro? Ubiquity does relate to iCloud syncing but it seems to just relate to older versions of macOS. What is the date on the newest file in that folder? – Alistair McMillan Dec 13 '17 at 0:35
