    Hello,

    I put a file on my MBP into a folder in ICloud Drive.
    I go to my IMac, open ICloud Drive -> the file is not there.

    In my IOS devices, using the ICloud Drive App the file is there.


    On OSX it always takes really a long time that you get everything updated. I do not talk about seconds...i mean evean after 10 minutes files are not shown.

    Yes, if necessary i can use for example AirDrop if i need a file right now......however for stuff like that also the ICloudDrive should work.


    Does anyone experience the same behavior (i think everyone does?)?
    Is there a way to "refresh" the ICloudDrive on OSX manually?

    Regards,
    bmodi

    have u tried logging in via icloud.com and checking ?

    if files are in icloud when accessing via web, try signing out of icloud on iMac and back in, as the issue would be due to mac only. Depends on file sizes it could take time.

    Hi,

    the files are there. I mean, after a while i get them......but it takes much too long.....as i said, i do not know how long but at least more than 10 minutes......

    On the IOS ICloudDrive app i can see the file directly after i uploaded it on my MBP.
    It is just on OSX that the ICloudDrive in the finder takes that long to synchronize.
