    i have my documents being uploaded currently (in the process of) to iCloud drive,

    i don't mind this as my files and documents are small,

    but i have recently installed a game, WOT, which has installed i directory into 'Documents' 26GB, and now iCloud is trying to upload this folder into my cloud drive,

    is their a way to exclude this particular folder only, ?

    many thanks,

    This isn't possible as far as I know. I would just move the game to another location on your computer so this doesn't happen. Documents should be for documents not for software as far as icloud is concerned.

    Just curious about how you upload to iCloud. Do you just drag the Documents folder?

    He's using macOS Sierra I believe. Which has an option to keep your documents and desktop folders in the cloud and sync across all devices
