What most of us don’t know is where Apple puts the files on our Macs that sync to iCloud. Here’s a free way to give yourself a little more control over what files get uploaded and synchronized with iCloud.
It’s called iCloudDisk and all it does is let you create a folder on your Mac that syncs files back to iCloud. It’s like a free online backup for files.
Here’s how it works. Open iCloudDisk and create the iCloudDisk folder. Whatever files you drop into the iCloudDisk folder get uploaded and synchronized to your iCloud account.
Apple, of course, doesn’t want users to muck around in the iCloud file hierarchy so they make it a bit difficult to find the location of the files. Mac OS X Hints has a simple set of tips on how to find iCloud’s files on your Mac.
iCloudDisk works well and just makes it that much easier to store files to be synchronized to iCloud and the app is free.
Here’s the problem. Go to the developers website and you wont’ find any information about iCloudDisk. What you will find is this:
I’m Sonee, a 15 year old innovator, Mac app developer, student and geek from the British Virgin Islands. If you will like to contact me feel free to send me a email.
If you want to download the app and give it a whirl, it’s available from MacUpdate.
While I don’t mind using a free app I do have reservations about using it for anything critical when there isn’t even a bona fide website with product information and usage, and no support mechanism available.
