I signed up for iCloud storage for added security (in case my local computers crash or are stolen), but am finding out iCloud is trying to only keep certain frequently used files also on my Mac (running 10.13.6) and Macbook Pro (running 11.1).
If I lose internet, power goes out, or iCloud gets hacked and everything gets deleted/corrupted, I think the cloud-only documents are vulnerable to loss. My goal is to always have safe and complete versions of the files and no “dehydrated links / stub files for download on demand data on my computers.
- assume both Macs have more free storage than my iCloud storage quota
- Assume both are online and internet is fast enough for syncs to happen regularly and efficiently
Is there a way to force iCloud to keep all files at all times current in both my local machines?
