What is a .cloud/.cloudf file?

hello why are some of my files now cloudf ? thanks

Hi @sioux,
These are what we call “placeholder” files. They represent files and folders in the cloud. You can learn more about this here: https://docs.odrive.com/docs/sync-your-odrive#section--placeholder-folders-

I thought just cloud was a placeholder ? cloudf is? thanks

Hi @sioux,
Placeholders can be used for both folders and files. .cloud is a file placeholder and .cloudf is a folder placeholder. This is explained in more detail in the link I posted above.
