I have several 100 GB of files in iCloud drive (Documents). Many of these files only are in cloud due to iCloud sync optimization. What happens if I copy the the documents folder to a NAS drive?

  1. It will download all non-synced files and copy them to the NAS
  2. It will only copy the locally available files resulting in an incomplete copy

Kind regards

  • I don't think iCloud syncing works with a NAS. There's been other, similar questions asked here (not a lot but a few), if you search for them you can see the answers already provided. – fsb Feb 9 at 15:26
