Use this method to move a file from its current location to iCloud. For files located in an app’s sandbox, this involves physically removing the file from the sandbox container. (The system extends your app’s sandbox privileges to give it access to files it moves to iCloud.) You can also use this method to move files out of iCloud and back into a local directory.
If your app is presenting the file’s contents to the user, it must have an active file presenter object configured to monitor the specified file or directory before calling this method. When you specify

true if it is successful. Calling this method also notifies your file presenter of the new location of the file so that your app can continue to operate on it.
