    I don't even have iCloud Drive in my sidebar. How do I get THAT back?

    It's because you're using a third party app to add colored sidebar icons.

    Finder -> Preferences -> Sidebar -> Check iCloud.

    Out of curiosity what makes you think he's using a tweak?

    No idea what that screenshot you posted has to do with this topic because your iCloud icon is showing correctly and you are not using a colored sidebar tweak (notice how your icons are gray).

    • The Finder sidebar icons have been gray since Lion.
    • The Finder sidebar icons in the OP are colorful.
    • The only way to change that is using one of a few 3rd party tools, these include:
    • Using any of these tweaks provides an exact match of the OP issue

    > The missing iCloud icon is there because none of these have been updated to include the iCloud icon.

    > OP won't admit he's using a 3rd party tool so it's either out of ignorance or he's being sarcastic.

    Got me, I didn't notice the colored icons. However it makes no sense why he would ask for help with a problem and offer either a photoshopped image or deny using an App. :confused:

    Probably doesn't even realize he has it installed and or doesn't know what the tweaks he's using do.

    No.
    No.
    No.

    I don't use any of those. Finder is fine how it is. I don't need to mess with it.

    Here you go; Installed TotalFinder and do you notice that the icons are coloured now and the iCloud icon is missing? Good Luck to ya!

    Go to /Library/Cache and ~/Library/Cache and delete the contents of these folders. Secure empty your trash to permanently delete the contents then reboot and all should be well

    I just downloaded it, clicked on the colored icon checkbox, then unchecked it. Didn't do anything.

    I tried. Still color and no iCloud icon.

    Have you filed a BR? You will probably be asked about the icons.

    What do you get from this command in terminal:
    Code:
    ls -al /Library/ScriptingAdditions/ ~/Library/ScriptingAdditions/ /Library/Application\ Support/SIMBL/Plugins ~/Library/Application\ Support/SIMBL/Plugins

    Well now I know how to fix it but only if you're willing to admit you're using a third party tweak.

    I have already admit it and showed my tweak! So do you care to share with other 'honest' members? :D

    Depends on what app you're using.

    TotalFinder seems to be based on ColorfulSideBar whereas XtraFinder just uses ColorfulSideBar.

    1) Navigate to the ColorfulSideBar.bundle *
    2) Open the bundle
    3) Navigate to the Resource Folder
    4) Open "icons.plist"
    5) Add an array to root. The array name should be the direct path to the icon you want to use **
    6) Add an item to the array of type string, the string should be iCloud ***
    7) Save
    8) Reload the plugin

    You can use this method to customize any of the sidebar icons to look however you want. (here I used a steam chat emoji)

    If this all seems over your head you can use cDock (which installs ColorfulSideBar that I've updated with the Yosemite iCloud fix) to install the colored finder sidebar icons.

    *
    Code:
    SIMBL + CSB	: /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/ColorfulSidebar.bundle
    EasySIMBL + CSB	: ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/ColorfulSidebar.bundle
    TotalFinder	: /Library/ScriptingAdditions/TotalFinder.osax/Contents/Resources/TotalFinder.bundle/Contents/PlugIns/ColorfulSidebar.bundle
    XtraFinder	: /Library/ScriptingAdditions/XtraFinder.osax
    **
    I used
    Code:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/MobileMe.icns

    Thanks w0lf, I was able to change all the icons except for iCloud's for some reason.

    I tried putting in the string iCloud but that has no effect. I assume the string has changed in Yosemite, any idea what it could be?

    This worked quite well for all icons except iCloud. I tried "iCloud Drive" & "iCloud" per your instructions but it's still not getting the icon. :(

    Would you have any other suggestions for fixing this?

    Thanks,

    Also tried:
    ~/Library/Mobile Documents
    ~/Library/Mobile Documents/iCloud Drive
    ~/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs

    All of which direct you to iCloud Drive in Finder but aren't working for the string.

    Anyone have any other ideas?

    Workaround for missing iCloud sidebar icon

    1. Download your favorite iCloud folder icon
    2. Disable iCloud drive in Finder Preferences
    3. Goto ~Library and locate the Mobile Documents folder
    4. Get Info on Mobile Documents folder and paste in iCloud icon
    5. Drag Mobile Documents to window sidebar
    6. Select Mobile Documents, Right Click and rename to iCloud. You can not
    use iCloud Drive - the name is already taken).
    7. Enjoy.

    Now who knows how to make the Downloads folder have a colorful icon (using Simbl and ColorfulSidebar turns Downloads into a blank document icon)?
