I've recently noticed that iCloud synced folders are linked to /Users//Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs
I wonder if I could link there a folder myself and therefore have it synced.
Here is the output of ls -l in this directory:
total 0 lrwxr-xr-x@ 1 kubachrabanski staff 29 Nov 1 19:36 Desktop -> /Users/kubachrabanski/Desktop lrwxr-xr-x@ 1 kubachrabanski staff 31 Sep 24 20:48 Documents -> /Users/kubachrabanski/Documents
The problem is that those default Apple links are different, they have a @ sign in permissions (and belong to staff group, which is not a problem).
- What type of links are they and how does one make them?
- Can linking a folder this way possibly force iCloud to back it up?
