    Just upgraded to Yosemite on my Mac Mini. From all the videos I've seen, I should just be able to click on the iCloud Drive icon in Finder and go right to it. Drag any file I want, create folders, etc. However, when I click the icon in Finder, it does nothing. When I right-click and open it in a new tab, it takes me to CloudDocs libraries with folders for Pages and TextEdit. I cannot drag and drop to iCloud, or create new folders. The only way I can add a file is if I add it to one of the Pages or TextEdit folders.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Seems to be a few having this issue. I was one but it seems fine now. I think it takes time to shuffle your current documents around in the cloud. The more you have, the longer it takes. I can now see the icon folders from the sidebar and add new folders.

    Oddly I can't see ALL the folders in the Cloud. All I have listed in Finder are Numbers, Automator, Pages, TextEdit and Preview but in iCloud.com I've also got KeyNote, QuickTime Player and Script Editor. Unless Finder only shows folders for Apps I've actually got documents for, but iCloud.com shows some extras for some reason.

    really don't get how icloud drive works. or maybe it doesnt.

    my icloud drive is just empty. created some files with goodreader in icloud to see if anything changes.. nothing..

    created a folder on osx to see if i can get to it on ios.. can't see it with good reader..

    if that's not how its supposed to work, then apple really didnt make it easy to understand..
