iCloud drive

Why doesn't my iCloud drive show up in PathFinder, on the left? And, why are there two (2) "iCloud Drive (Archive)" folders under my user directory. There's one called that and a second one called "iCloud Drive (Archive) -1." Neither of them show up in Finder, regular Finder.

This is not good.

Thanks,
Peter

    I just checked per your suggestions. There is no iCloud drive option under Favorites in my Finder preferences.

    Please use this article to set up you iCloud integration http://support.cocoatech.com/kb/installation-and-compatibility/iclo...

    When the integration is done, if you can't see all the iCloud folders from Path Finder, please press Command + J and check "show invisibles".

    Hi Peter,

    Thank you for your email!

    In order for me to best assist you could you specify the following information:

    1. What is the exact version of Path Finder that you currently have (including the build)?
    2. What is the version of your Operating System?

    Looking forward to your reply to provide you with further assistance. Thanks!

    Hi Peter,

    Thank you for verifying you version details.

    It's pretty unusual behavior, could you please send us a screenshot of the described issue?

    Because iCloud Drive integration in Path Finder is still in progress and future updates will bring improvements in this area. The reason for that is that iCloud offers no public API to do so.

    Here’s a screenshot. How come Creative Cloud (Adobe) is there, but not iCloud?

    It also doesn’t even show me my Documents folder. Luckily, I found the shortcut to it. Command + shift + o.

    Hi Peter,

    Could you please press the little "gear" in the left-bottom corner and select "New Sidebar", let us know if creating new sidebar helps to resolve the issue.

    I did just that, and, it worked! Awesome. Thanks a lot. I now see my iCloud Drive and my Documents folder. I notice that it simply replaces the existing sidebar. It doesn’t actually create a new one.

    Hmmm. I guess I have to take that back. When I actually click on my iCloud folder, nothing appears. I just put some files in there, but, they’re showing up under my Documents folder now, not my iCloud folder. And, yes, under iCloud, I’ve told it to synch my iCloud with my Documents and Desktop, but, still, those files, all of them, should show up under iCloud.

    Hi Peter,

    Glad to hear, that you have finally got your iCloud drive back. But if it's not working could you please press Command + J, when you are in the iCloud folder, then check "show Invisibles".

    I turned on “show invisibles” and now I see the contents of my iCloud Drive. Thanks. I already had that feature turned on, but, I guess you need to do it for all views.

    Cheers.

    Jeff, have you tried creating a new sidebar (yes, it replaces the standard one) and toggling the "Show invisibles" to make a content appear?

    That worked.
    Might be helpful to put it high up in your knowledge base article.
    Thanks
