@apulianas I’ve never really gotten into using iCloud Drive, except for in iOS apps that basically give me no other choice. These kinds of issues were my fear. Hope you can get it worked out. Losing data always sucks.
@joec I don't think I will lose data because I have a recent Time Machine and BackBlaze backup but I definitely will lose some time. I turned on iCloud Drive by mistake when the option became available and decided to give it a chance. I think its run is over once I get this settled.
@apulianas That's a real shame. Apple's cloud services in general have gotten better over the years (contact and calendar syncing being huge examples) but they still seem to have a way to go before I can trust them with my work files.
