What I keep on iCloud etc is only of concern for me if I lose it. There is nothing sensitive. It appears that because they share Bluetooth a deletion on one means the same happens on all devices etc. I tried deleting on one device whilst Bluetooth was off but when I switched back on the file was deleted on the others! Odd that it should do that instead of updating and reloading the image.
Grrr.
I use a constantly varying VPN which can be a bit of a bind as I am repeatedly warned about access from strange places but, it is a small price to pay for keeping the ne’er do wells at bay.
i just keep a usb stick for sensitive data, plug it in....do your work...plug it out....but i am a simple company!!!!!kopie and past every month....

Dropbox works the same way, effectively a "shared" hard drive. Delete it on one place and it should be gone everywhere.

New versions of DropBox allow you to override that deletion... and there are more options.

But Apple software is famous for a simplified interface, and thus fewer options.

I am still amazed you only back up a business once a month... so you are gambling that you can lose up to 30 days of work....

With iPad or iPhone, when you delete from your iCloud folder, you are deleting from the server, which is why you lose it, you will have had a warning, but may have click “not to show again” at sometime. You need to transfer out of your folder anything you wish to keep, but not in the cloud.

I have yet to find a usb stick which works with an iPad. At best, I get a few images but most transfer as no more than a dozen pixels!
After using 2 or 3 times the iPads then fail to recognise the sticks entirely. :(

I have 2 usb sticks that work happily with iPad and iPhone and have had both over 3 years now. I tend to use the leef just for pics as that it was bought for. The other is a FlashDrive which also works for pics but files as well. I have used both to load pics from my iMac to iPad for use in the forum. Both sticks plug into the lightning connector on the iPad or iPhone without ant dongle etc.
