I got a MacBook first and synced Documents and Desktop to iCloud. Then I got a Mac Mini and also enabled syncing. Now with the Desktop it works as expected: Same files on both Desktops. But in Documents a subfolder for my "Mac Mini Documents" was created. I was expecting a single shared Documents folder. Can I put those files (Mac Mini's Documents) in the main Documents folder without breaking anything?

This is how it works. You can now merge and clean up the documents as you wish. Start with a couple files, test and then move them all.

I do also keep backups from my mini for if or when a sync delete deletes more than I expected. You only have a limited time to recover them from the web app interface for iCloud
