Question: turning off icloud drive
so im going around in frustrated cycles with Mac at the moment.
My macbook has icloud drive turned on, which means it is constantly trying to upload 600gig of my high res proff photos to the cloud.
I dont want this and have followed various advice on turning off icloud drive for desktop. It says" desktop will only be availbale in the cloud" or some ***** similar. So when I follow through, my desktop disappears.
Im then told that if I just copy the files from the cloud "desktop folder" back to my desktop, all will be fine.
when I do this it tells me I dont have enough space on my computer!!!!???
How is this possible? the folders and files on my computer are on my desktop. I know they have not uploaded to the cloud yet as it is still trying, i can see it in the progress bar.
none of this makes sense.
all i want is my files, stored on my desktop and attached to my 8 tb raid system.
but instead, all the keeps happening is the drive wants to be used, hence i pay for more space etc etc.
