    I decided to set up iCloud Drive on my new MBP 15" with Touchbar to let it backup my Documents and Desktop. I bought the 50GB program for this.

    But so far it is painly slow in uploading my files. Altogether it needs to upload about 18GB of files. I had it running all evening yesterday, then all night through and now all morning, so it had at least 12 hours of time where nothing else was happening... and yet it still needs to upload over 10GB.
    Why is this taking so long? Am I doing anything wrong? Dropbox seems to do this so much faster (yet it is now as nice since I need a workaround and I prefer tripple or quadripple backups for certain files ;) ).

    Any ideas?
