Hi everyone!
Since sierra uploads the file in the cloud ( document & desktop ). I wonder if you could share it to anybody? Like clients or family?
In dropbox i could just copy the link and i could share it to anyone. Does icloud have this feature. Also recently upgraded to their 1TB storage plan for this. Planning to fully use icloud for work and personal back ups.

Thank you!

This and the lack of a visible method via Finder to restore files/previous versions (not via time machine, more akin to what dropbox does). The current iCloud restore mechanism of logging into iCloud then going to drive, then settings is cumbersome. There’s likely a few things I’m missing, but these 2 would make it competitive enough to “drop” Dropbox for iCloud.

iCloud Drive is far behind Dropbox and Google. Maybe on par with Onedrive...
Actually, OneDrive also does file sharing via Finder and has a decent restore mechanism on their site. Overall they’re roughly as good as the main players.
