I have this scenario: 2 Mac, I work on both of them online and offline.
I would like to have selected folders always in sync and the copy on each machine. So, If I work from home on Mac 1 and update or create a document, when I open it on Mac 2 at the office I have exactly the same document. I do understand that if one or both machines are offline the document may be old or not there. Would iCloud allow me to do do the above? Right now I have files on both machines. Would I cloud sort that out and arrange to have only the latest version on both machines?
This section of the iCloud service description makes me think that I will not have a copy of the files on my machine. This is a concern for me because often I have no connectivity when in remotes areas.
"When you add your Desktop and Documents to iCloud Drive, all of your files move to iCloud. On your Mac, you can find the files on your Desktop and in your Documents folder in Finder under iCloud. If you add a second Mac Desktop, you'll find those files in the Desktop folder in iCloud Drive...."
