Hi,

i'm using iCloud Drive for storing my RAW files and i have found, i'm not able to open folders from iCloud Drive.
Tried to enter the path as a start path, but no result. It will not open.
Is there any way how to deal with this issue?
Thanks in advance for any help or advice!

Regard Jiri

I believe in order for that to work you need to have a physical iCloud drive folder on your computer.

I have an iCloud Drive folder on both my W10 PC and MacBook Air. I can access folders and an image file in iCloud Drive using DPP4 on both computers.

Thanks for reply. My iCloud Drive folders and my files are physicaly presented on my hard drive.
That means they are synchronized to iCloud and NOT deleted from my computer, but still physicaly saved on drive.
My iCloud Drive path is not visible in DPP, neither any from "invisible" folders like Library or symbolic links pointed to iCloud Drive i have created.
Which path do you see for your iCloud Drive in DPP (on MacOS), please?
I'm on Monterey 12.2.1 and DPP 4.16.
I have allowed DPP to access all files in OS security settings.

Regards Jiri

Thank you very much for your help! I can see the reason now. Your files are stored in the subfolder under Desktop folder, which is stored in the iCloud Drive ... 
My folders/files are in the top level of iCloud Drive. There is no way to these folders in DPP.
But after moving my folders/files into the Desktop folder, they are immediatelly visible in DPP.
Once again, thank you for your time and effort!

Regards Jiri

Glad I could be of help.

I don't think you want to put your entire iCloud drive under desktop as that will really slow down your system startup.
