    Straight from this Apple Support article: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201104

    "You shouldn't store app folders, libraries, or .tmp files in iCloud Drive."

    I think I know what libraries are... i.e. Photos Library but what are "app folders" ?

    Thoughts?

    I would assume those are the Apps that are stored in folders inside the Apps Folder.

    ie. My Adobe apps are contained in folders — and not just a single file. The Wacom files are inside a Wacom folder. Same for Maxwell Render.

    It seems that's what it is saying but by that logic, I can store apps in iCloud Drive as long as they aren't in a folder? That just doesn't seem to make sense. I was thinking it was saying Applications themselves but why not just call them Applications?
