[doublepost=1495829433][/doublepost]Thanks for the reply but no, I didn't enable iCloud syncing.If by "moved" you mean you've enabled iCloud syncing of Desktop & Documents, you can uncheck that option and then copy them back from the iCloud drive using the usual drag method.
They appear to have changed the default (copy vs move) at some point to match what Dropbox does. You can always force it to make a copy by holding Option while dragging, which works both going to and from iCloud. At least it does for me under El Capitan.I did a Select All, then dragged them to the iCloud folder in Finder.
Now my local Documents Folder is empty.
