files uploaded to icloud are not available in the directory listing. In the Finder is displayed a cloud icon with an arrow next to the file name through which the file can be downloaded.

    Thanks for messaging us!

    I'm afraid Path Finder does not have a way to see the files not locally present on your Mac. Could you please download files you'd like to have access to from Path Finder and make sure to disable "Optimize Mac Storage" for your iCloud Drive so they won't go cloud again? 

    You can find more information about iCloud Drive integration in Path Finder in this article. It also addresses your issues and what you need to do to make all iCloud application library folders appear in Path Finder.

    If you still have problems after applying steps outlined in the article, report back to us here. Thanks.

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
