Download iCloud Files
This option, when enabled, will download iCloud files in selected iCloud Drive folders that match the file type (file extension) criteria, if they are known, yet not downloaded on the device.
Typically this needs to be only run once before a set of search queries. For this reason the option resets after use. It is re-enabled if the file type criteria are changed. It can also be enabled manually.
iCloud Drive file download speed will depend on network connectivity. Progress is indicated in the app Status field. The downloading process can be interrupted.
Note that if you try downloading files for an iCloud Drive folder that has recently been synced, you may not fetch all the files. Restarting the app sometimes helps (I’m trying to work out why this is so).
