This seems a perfectly simple question, but answers I find on the web are confusing and I dare not rely upon them. They talk about odrives and worry me that the drive is not what I need.
I have a lot of data which I rarely use, but must keep. It amounts to about 500gb and I have purchased 1tb on an annual basis from Amazon. I have the desktop app installed and am currently doing a back-up of live files from my Mac. Most of the important data is on a 1tb external hard drive and I'll set about uploading that when I know my files will be safe.
What I need to know is this:
- If I delete folders and files on my Mac to save space, are they still in the Amazon cloud?
- Does this also apply with the sync folder or does that delete on both drives?
I hope that is specific. The trouble is that I dare not delete the local files until I am absolutely certain that they remain on the Amazon drive - we're talking years and years of work here.
Hope someone can help.
