    Hey!

    I've installed the new OS X Sierra from scratch after backing up all my data of course.

    All my books and pdf are stored on the cloud so Im fine(I thought I was)..

    When entering iBooks I am asked if I want to use iCloud storage and I hit Yes.

    But all my books and PDFs are gone..

    Nothing I do they won't return..The library is empty :-(. (if it matter, I use a time capsule to backup everything).

    And I've just got a new iPhone 7 and tried to get on my iBooks on IOS, but all books are there, stored in the cloud and the option to download them is present..and works just fine.
    Same goes for my iPad..


    The problem with this is that if my iBooks library is empty, I cannot sync my new books on iTunes since it will delete all the books which are already on my idevice..

    Any idea how to fix it?



    I've read many different types of solution for this, but nothing seem to work and the problems are a little different then mine..



    Thanks a lot for your help!

    If you click on the all books tab then the sort by option is hide iCloud books on by chance?

    If it's saying show instead of hide then you need to click it. Maybe toggle it just to check anyway.

    Damn, I'm sorry then, that's the only thing I can think of. Since you're using time machine backups what I'd then do is go to the finder location for iBooks files (google how to get there) then restore them to a new location like your desktop and then manually drag them into iBooks again.

    I tried it but unfortunately it doesn't work either..
    I really don't understand whats going on..
    I've read somewhere that apple disabled the pdf syncing to iDevices but not really sure if its true..
