Question: Finder says my ICloud storage is full. System prefernces says 147gb free.

Finder recently advised me that ICloud memory was full, so I updated it to 200kb.

Finder has not got the message. What to do?



iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015), macOS Sierra (10.12)

Hello and welcome to Apple Support Communities, LCWyche.
If I understand your post correctly, you've upgrading your iCloud account but you're not seeing that reflected on your Mac. I'd like to help.
Follow these steps:

Check to see how much iCloud storage you have

  • On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:
    • If you're using iOS 10.3 or later, go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud. Tap iCloud Storage or Manage Storage.
    • If you’re using iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to Settings > iCloud > Storage.
  • On your Mac, go to Apple menu > System Preferences, click iCloud, then click Manage.
  • On your PC, just open iCloud for Windows.

Manage your iCloud storage
Let us know if that resolves this issue for you.
Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Take care.

Thanks for replying Chris.

iCloud manage is where I get the figure of 147 GB free storage from.

Whenever I save something I am told that iCloud storage is full.

I don't know whether it is actually saving to iCloud despite the message.
