> Cloud storage is a git repository that is stored on your local disk and in our cloud server (if you have synced it to cloud). The cloud storage can be managed the same way git repositories are. I.e. I have added another remote to my local NAS to have it there as well. But as long as you do not delete or corrupt the git information, you can checkout different versions and manipulate it quite freely.
OK I did not see that. That is actually a much better solution, now I will go hunting on my Mac to find the repo.

> If you have chosen "local default file" in preferences, then the XML log is saved (or it can also be git repository with special syntax for the local file). If you have selected "Cloud storage default file", Subsurface should use local git repository that is also pushed to our cloud server. It might be that you are actually using the git storage but are looking at older XML file. (I am not sure where the local git storage is on Mac, but it is /home/<username>/.subsurface/cloudstorage/<hash>/ in Linux.)
There are no .subsurface and no directory “cloudstorage” on my Mac (searched from root with sudo).

Seems I have to dig into the code, but thanks for a good explanation.
