Answer:
Answer:

iCloud Drive (and the Files app) is a syncing service - not simply offline storage. Its purpose is to keep the files up-to-date on all your devices. If you make any edits (including deletes) on one device, they will be made on all your devices (and in iCloud). If you want offline storage, explore the iTunes Store for apps like google drive, for example.
