Fixing MacOS Cloud Sync

Sometimes, especially with Monterey, I have had iCloud file syncing hang where it shows there are files that need to be uploaded, but for whatever reason it stops uploading the files; sometimes for a couple of hours, sometimes completely. And, of course it will do this when I have other projects open I don’t want to close for a reboot. Fortunately, there is a way to shake the tree and get it to resume syncing. All you have to do is reset the cloudd daemon. To give it the nudge it needs, you just send it the HUP (hangup) signal. From the terminal:

sudo killall -HUP cloudd
