I have over 1TB of data on my iCloud and I can't seem to find an easy way to manage what files are downloaded to my computer and which ones are not.

I know about right clicking a file and selecting "Remove Download" but it's just that it's super unreliable, if there's only one file whose download is removed you can no longer remove the download of an entire folder.

So I have around 500GB of pictures in one folder and I can't tell easily what is copied offline and what is just in the cloud.
