I had a mini crisis today after deleting some files by mistake.
I have excellent Time Machine Backup to a local file server and have a history going back for a long time, and fine grained.
However, the files that were deleted were on iCloud/Documents (where so many of my files are.) I assumed this was a redundant backup.
I believe I figured out that files on iCloud are not backed up in a useful way by a local backup. Only their "stubs".
Can someone confirm this for me? This seems like a major loophole or gap.
