    I'd like to move some of my files from DropBox over to iCloud, but I have no idea where to move them on my MBP.

    Where do I send my files so that they sync with all my Apple electronics?

    Thanks!

    I am wondering the same thing. Does icloud have a version or application like idisk? I read that idisk is going away, this blows, because I use it every day.

    You have to go to www.icloud.com and click on iWork. Then drag your files into the browser window. It will on work for iWork files.

    documents in the cloud are implemented by the developer of the particular app. in keeping with apples belief that the user shouldn't need to manage files, but the application should.

    so when developers update their app, cloud syncing should work seamlessly between the app on all your devices.

    i didnt understand the drag into reply. but from what i have read and understand is that the only way files will be stored in icloud is if you have pages keynote and numbers for your ios device. maybe i missed something but that is what i have found

    for now i think you cant store microsoft files and i know nothing of pdf files but when you go into the documents section it wants you to purchase the ios version of iwork and then it will store documents. i think the whole thing was incredibly misleading by apple

    Big time. To me, DropBox is still superior, heck, even the file thing that apple had was better.

    I thought we could just drag and drop files like Dropbox.

    yah very disappointing. i thought i could just have files held i my 5 free gb but then i discovered they will only be stored if i have ios verions of iwork. but as i said maybe i am misunderstanding something but i think storing files is only possible with ios iwork

    I've gone off it, and switching to SkyDrive.

    I just wanted somewhere to store my files, but without an iOS device or Lion it's just gonna be too much of a hassle.

    I don't think I misinterpreted what iCloud was gonna be, just that I thought the basic file retention would be something in the background, hidden behind all the sync tools and what not, and not something that would require additional/third party apps to make it work.

    MS Office files are supported. From the pages/numbers/keynote bit of iCloud.com click the settings wheely cog button thing and select the upload option, then browse to your file.

    PDFs are not supported.
