    Hello!

    I was playing around with iCloud out of curiosity. I don't use it, so it confuses me, why are there files marked in icloud?

    This is how it looks when I log into iCloud using iCloud.com site.

    But when I use the app from System Preferences > iCloud, I get zero:



    EDIT:
    From Mac, it also says 10.5 MB


    But when I click manage, it gives me ZERO, like in earlier screenshots.

    So what is that 10.52 MB files in icloud?
    How to access it? How to remove it?

    It's 10 MB. That's the size of one MP3 file. Just ignore it.

    So it's normal for non-accessible files appear in iCloud? I just don't know if it could have grabbed something when I played with it and what it did - or is it some system files?

    Most likely the latter.

    Likely index files and whatever data files needed to keep iCloud running.

    Or aliens. Or russians.

    Take your pick. Its 10MB.

    So some random poop that has nothing to do with my personal files?
