    Hi Guys,

    I'm lost, checked Google but see a lot of different answers.
    I have around 200 GB on pictures, my macbook has 128 GB (using 10.10).

    What I would like to do, is to store my files in to the iCloud drive. What i'm wondering is if it's also stored locally or acts as a online harddrive.

    I'm also using a Windows computers will it be synced (which I really don't want).

    Hopefully someone can clarify this.

    Thank you

    For a Mac it's both. Duplicate files are also stored in your Library folder. Not sure how it works on Windows.
