    Hi guys,

    Recently all of my files in a certain folder have recieved an icon "Two blue arrows forming a circle".

    Does anyone know what the icon means and why it is showing?

    Have you got any cloud storage providers on your Mac? Like Google Drive, OneDrive, etc? Looks like a "retry uploading" symbol

    Yes, thanks! Google Drive was the culprit. Funnily enough, I have never asked Google Drive to start syncing my folders. It just decided to do so all of its own accord for some strange reason known only to the Google developers... :(
