I just moved a folder with 5 GB from my MBP to my iCloud. Strangely this happened in a jiffy. A recalculation of the capacity used (with WhatSize) showed that the new capacity had increased by 5GB. Did it actually move? Uploads usually take some time.
As Joe Kissell mentioned in his “Take Control of iCloud” this is a rather complex subject. So complex actually that I am feeling lost.
Example: This folder “/Users/hartmut/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs” on my MBP contains 62,8 GB of data. I’d like to delete them. Can I do this?
My understanding is that I can use iCloud any way I want, e.g. as storage for little used files. (I have the 2TB tier)
