Alfred config in iCloud drive getting offloaded

Recommended Posts

This might be an icloud drive issue but I figured someone else here might have encountered the same issue and knows how to fix it.


I have my alfred config in icloud drive to sync between devices. Now one device, macbook pro, since upgrading to catalina,  the files for alfred config starts to get offloaded from the mac every now and then so i need to force download in finder to have proper working alfred.


Anyone who knows how i can force keep the alfred config folder downloaded?

@dfgh turn off Optimised storage: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207236


Alternatively, you can pin individual folders in macOS Catalina which should prevent this:




YMMV with this, I haven't had a chance to test pinning folders in Catalina, and I can't seem to find any official Apple documentation for this.

Ill try turning off optimization, thanks.  


Pinning doesnt seem to be available. Maybe they turned it off before final release?  the reddit mentions it as a beta feature so it might be in the works.

Yeah you should move it. It turned out the os thought the disk space was getting low. Except it wasn't. But I did a little prechristmas cleaning anyway and I think that resolved it. Sorry for posting in wrong forum!
