How to safely add folders to iCloud in macOSLocked
Adding folders to iCloud on macOS is a straightforward process. iCloud is Apple’s cloud storage service, and it can be used to store files, documents, and folders. To safely add folders to iCloud on your macOS device, follow these steps:
Ensure iCloud Drive is Enabled:
Before adding folders to iCloud, make sure iCloud Drive is enabled on your macOS device. To do this, go to “System Preferences” > “Apple ID” > “iCloud” and ensure that “iCloud Drive” is checked.
Create a New Folder or Use an Existing One:
You can create a new folder to store your files in iCloud or use an existing folder that you want to move to iCloud.
Drag and Drop the Folder to iCloud Drive:
Open a Finder window and locate the folder you want to add to iCloud.
Simply drag and drop the folder into the “iCloud Drive” section in the Finder’s sidebar. You can also drag it directly into the “iCloud Drive” folder.
Wait for Sync:
Once you drop the folder into iCloud Drive, macOS will begin the syncing process. This might take some time, depending on the size of the folder and your internet connection speed.
You’ll see a small cloud icon next to the folder while it’s syncing. Once the cloud icon disappears, it means the folder is fully synced to iCloud.
