I've been moving to cloud all day long, but when I went to the website, the books are still showing in my library as unarchived. So, do I still need to archive them? What exactly does moving an item into the "cloud" do?

Actually this sounds like it may be a positive if this is the beavior it does. Archiving has been infamous for removing an item from all devices on an account. Maybe, hopefully, this solves that?

I'm with dogwiz and 2noelle....when I send a book or app "away" I want it off all of my lists except the "Archived" list.
I wouldn't mind a "Cloud" list if items would automatically go there and get off my other listings when I "clouded" them.

I too am with the "I sent it away to the cloud and I want it to disappear from the library" group. I use the archive feature to remove the books from the local device to save space as well as the effort of having to roll past EVERYTHING I have on the Nook. I would rather have a view stuff in the cloud option on the Library menu than to see everything whenever I visit the library. If I need to see what I have stored I can go to the See the Cloud Storage option similar to going to the Archive shelf in the NC.

Good points that I didn't think about. Well, it was just a guess on my part on why it was doing t hat anyways

With the current software, you can only UNarchive on the Nook. To archive you have to go to your PC. I hope they will change this in a new release. If they do, I don't see much difference between Clouding and archiving.

I noticed as well that Archiving from the device is gone on the HD+. As was already said you can still archive from your PC (I do it at the website, havn't tried the Nook PC software). So clearly Archiving and Moving to the Cloud are two different animals. For clarity here's what I read in the manual regarding the Cloud:
"To save space on your device, you can move Library items to NOOK Cloud, the cloud-based storage service included with your NOOK account. once you move items to NOOK Cloud, they take up almost no space on your NOOK. Only the cover and a brief description of each item remains. You can re-download these items at any time by tapping on their covers. A green down-arrow on an item's cover indicates that it is available for downloading."
Personally I don't see much use for Move to Cloud for books or apps, but for movies it seems perfect. I hope they add the option to arcive from the devices as well but that may be confusing to a new NOOK user.

Archiving books from your PC works, but I have also found that if you have an older Nook version you can archive via that Nook, which will in turn sync with your HD and remove them from your Nook HD library and place them in the Archive file

This is less of a feature for me and more of a pain. Archiving on one device now archives from all?
What if I want it on my HD+ but not on my Color?
Anyways, thanks for mentioning this. Was beginning to think I was losing my head with apps disappearing etc.

Unarchiving would mean that the book would be available for download on other Nook devices. I'm all good with the archiving thing, it's the middle ground with "Nook Cloud" I'm not grasping too well.

The archiving feature has always worked so if you archive on one device, it's archived on others once they are connected to wi-fi, as it's related to the "syncing" of reading across multiple devices. This has often been a complaint related to the smaller storage devices like the nook simple touch, when there is insufficient memory to download all books, requiring you to archive some, even though there is sufficent memory on the NC or NT.

Can syncing be turned off on the HD or other devices so tht diff users can see what they want on each device?

Archiving on the Nook HD needs to be done on your "online library" on a computer. Archive the book there and then refresh your Nook when done. the book will be archived and disappear from your Nook. it works for me. I have no idea what the cloud is for.

Cloud removes an app or book from a device, archive removes the item from all devices.
Items moved to the cloud still visible in your device library, archived items must be viewed in the archive. Items in the cloud may still be active on your phone or a different nook. Archived items are removed from all of your devices.

I have a NC & HD+so I archive from my NC. I mainly archive magazines after I've read them, particularly the ones that come weekly, as they take up too much space on the NC. Even after I archive a mag from the NC it will stay on the HD+ until I do a soft reset to refresh. "
Books are not too much of a problem as a lot of my books are sideloads. When I'm finished I just remove them from the device. Since these books are stored in Calibe I can always reload them if I want to. The sideloads don't "sync" so I do have to remember to remove them from both devices. I love Calibre Companion as it makes it so easy to add/remove books wirelessly. I just wish it worked for the unrooted NC.
I didn't think I would use my NC much after I got the HD+ but that not proved to be the case. It is a better size for travel & to carry in my purse for "wait times," It also has a much longer battery life then the HD+. I just wish I could use Calibre Companion, the Zinio reader & Crackle on the NC. Maybe someday - but that's probably wishful thinking. I don't think BN plans to do anything more to upgrade that device.
