I have three Mac computers. An iMac (1TB disk), a MacBookPro (512GB disk) and a MacBookAir (256GB disk). The main computer I use is the iMac. All three are running the latest version of Mojave.
I want to relocate my home directory to an external disk because I do not have enough space on the 1TB disk to store all my document, photos, music, movies, etc.. I want all of these items under my home directory. I know how how to move my home directory to an external disks. My problem is I do not know how iCloud will deal with this move.
Currently, in System Preferences on all three computers, I have all items under iCloud checked off. Also under System Preferences -> iCloud -> iCloud Drive -> Options…, I have all options checked.
Do I have to uncheck “Desktop & Documents Folders” on my main computer before I move my home directory, then turn it back on after the move?
Will Mojave handle this correctly? Will this have a negative impact on the two laptops?
