Just trying to figure things out here and got myself a bit confused.
Here’s the situation:
I have a iMac at home, with a smallish main SSD boot drive (on which the main odrive folder resides) and few external HDDs attached to it. On the external drives are music libraries, sound effects libraries and various files that I want to sync to the cloud (Amazon Cloud Drive).
I want access to these files (on an ad hoc basis) whilst I’m on the road with my Macbook Pro.
I’m a premium member and I’ve synced the files on the external drives to the cloud. (I made a folder in odrive with the name of the external HDD and chose that for the sync location)
Will there be file duplication on my iMac SSD drive (or do I just leave the files as placeholders)
I recently checked and it seems the local files on my external HDD has disappeared (although they are uploaded into the cloud) but have just appeared as placeholders in the main odrive folder (on my SSD which doesn’t have the space to host the files locally). Is this supposed to happen? I don’t think so right? I’m thinking the premium feature would just allow me essentially to have synced folders outside of the main odrive folder without affecting the local files?
Please help me shed some light.
