I have enabled storing Desktop & Document Folders in iCloud. I keep my Xcode projects on Desktop. Every hour or so, iCloud will store files, inside of Pods folder present alongside the Xcode Project in iCloud. This is very tedious as I then have to click on each one of them one-by-one to re-download.
How can I prevent iCloud from downloading my files in this manner, for this specific Xcode project?
I have tried disabling iCloud for Desktop, but this results in me losing all my Desktop folders/files, so I could rather not go this route.
