  1. Moving files to iCloud Drive


    I am running out of space on the 256GB SSD on my laptop running Win 10 Home.

    I tried to move some rarely used files to my iCloud account using iCloud Drive but the space stays used on the SSD drive as shown in iCloud Drive folder. This does not happen on my friend's MACBook Pro. Is there a way to move files on Win 10 system to iCloud without their remaining on the SSD?

    :)

  4. Moving files to iCloud Drive

    Icloud Drive for windows not syncing files

    On windows 10

    Files (folders, word, excel pdf ect) that are added to icloud drive folder from the Win 10 PC will not upload to apple server or sync to apple devices

    Similarly files added from a mac or apple device do not sync back to Windows 10 PC

    Photos, calendar, reminders all sync normally

    Everything is up to date (windows & Icloud), tried signing in and out of icloud for windows, etc, disabled Norton, all the obvious things are ok

    Called Apple, called Norton, all is good on there end

    Even stranger, after signing out of icloud, deleting files off pc, and signing back in the files from icloud download to the pc just fine populating a up to date file list, but once the files are in the PC are alter or added to they will not sync as described
    above

    Anyone else experiencing this
