Just casting my problem out to a wider crowd…
My mac has iCloud switched on for the desktop and docs folder.
I keep my app files in folders on the desktop.
I copied 30 sound files from the desktop folder into the file navigator. I tick all the boxes, including the ‘make copies’ etc
They work fine but after a few minutes, even when the test is running, the links start to break. When I look at the desktop folder it seems icloud has made a decision to un-download a number of the wave files. The code hits a ‘file not found’ and makes a planned exit. I’m guessing Xcode is dependent on the desktop files still and the Mac thinks they aren’t being used and is trying to be efficient by freeing the space.
I’ve put the sound files in and out a half dozen times, same result. As part of a bigger purge of issues I have completely reformatted the Mac and reinstalled Xcode, same result.
If I delete the sound files from Xcode navigator, it also deletes them from the desktop file.
Can anyone help please?
Fix the ‘make copies’ issue so the files in Xcode are independent of the desktop ones

Thanks for any replies. Don’t assume I know much about macs, I am a PC person, so maybe it’s a tweak to fix.
P.s. OneDrive for Mac (as a PC to Mac bridge) has been a NIGHTMARE for me
