Hi,

As seen in the title, iCloud drive is using 12,35GB on my Macbook, but when I go to iCloud Drive in Finder, nothing is in there. How can I fix this?

It is remnants of icloud /desktop/documents. Don't use notes on your iPhone either, for 30 days. It seems that after about 30 days the deleted iCloud dox and desktop will be removed from iCloud. You can also have a look at the files in Library/containers/com.apple.notes/ You will likely see many gigabytes of files, regardless of how large your dox or desktop wwere.
