Here is some information from Apple about "Add your Desktop and Documents files to iCloud Drive":I want to have two computers desktop&docs in sync, and I noticed iCloud drive has a "Desktop & Documents" option that I don't know how it works.
I don't want only additions, i want a live sync (so removing something from desktop on my MBP would also remove it from my MM desktop).
You just need to move the files once from the separate folders for each computer into the iCloud documents folder and then they'll appear on both computers from then on.Thanks!
"Then you can combine your files manually, but iCloud doesn’t automatically merge the files in case you want to keep them separate. "
ugh. This, is unfortunate.
. . . for fun, I just added/removed some stuff remotely (MBP), and will report, later, how these actions are mirrored on the desktop at home.
that sounds kinda exactly like i want it to behave. I will try it out tomorrow, thanks.Tonight, I returned to the MP in the home/office desktop.
The other day, I added a folder called "only MBP", and deleted one (unneeded) file stored on iCloud.
What I see on my Desktop is the "only MBP" folder.
And, the deleted file is in my Trash
The latter implies "Good Stuff", as it means I can reverse-out something I do remotely, at home
Basically, I am (re-) assured that there is a close-knit continuity between the Documents/Desktop on all my devices that use iCloud.
I wouldn't stress too much about it, Ploki <smile>
