iCloud has the ability to offload files from my laptop, which is useful when I am running low on space, as shown below
In my case, I just installed Syncfusion's demos, and my files appear to be immediately "deleted and uploaded to the cloud", and it has a cloud icon., sometimes with an arrow, sometimes without
I attempt to click on the arrow, or the cloud, in the hopes of getting a configuration screen, and I get nothing.
Can someone tell me:
- How can I control this process from an iCloud perspective (Terminal, etc)
- What is the default criteria iCloud uses (Last Modified date, vs Last Access, etc.)
- Besides storing the files outside the documents directory, say at the root of my profile, is there any other option?
I'm asking because it's likely that I'll have applications that can't wait for a delay that will likely happens during a iCloud restore. This means .NET Core assemblies, and other necessary files for development will "act weird".
Can anyone help me understand the specifics of what that "weird" will be? E.g. the
NSFileHandler will report error code 123, until the file is restored.. I'd like to understand the logic a little bit better.
