    On the Mac, the errant file is here:

    /Users/mnewman/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs/MGN/Tax/Tax2018/1099/

    On the iOS devices I use the "Files" app.

    I always save the files I want to share across my devices in the "iCloud Drive" folder. I have a folder for each app I share.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    That's exactly what I'm doing. "iCloudDrive" is just an alias for "~/Library/Mobile Documents/"

    Go to the Finder. Navigate to the Library folder and then to the Mobile Documents folder. You'll see that it has the same contents as iCloudDrive.

    That's strange, as my "Mobile Documents" folder doesn't open to let me see what is in it?

    But it shows as using 2.1MB?

    Did you try double-clicking it?

    Mine looks the same in the Finder; as if it were empty. But double-clicking opens it up.

    BTW - It's only the Finder that does this. In PathFinder the contents show up. And, of course, in a terminal session it looks like any other directory.

    When I double click on it, it opens iCloud Drive.

    Yep. That's the way it's supposed to be.
