When you move or copy files from your Mac to iCloud Drive, you can always see the progress of the download. Finder on Mac allows you to check copy (move) status in multiple locations on the file system. Here are four ways to check the current status of your Mac to iCloud Drive copy process.
View download status in the Finder status bar
The Finder status bar is perhaps the most convenient way to check the download status, as this way you can also see how much disk space is left, the number of items in folders, and other useful information. In order to use it, you need to activate the status bar in the Finder window. This can be done by clicking on "View" and selecting the option "Show status bar".
View the download status of files when browsing by List
You can also find out the amount of files remaining to download by viewing the files in the List in the "Size" column of the Finder manager.
View download status as icons
If you are used to using icons in the Finder, not a list, you can still watch the process of downloading files. When copying files from Mac to iCloud Drive, the download status will be displayed directly below the icon.
View download status in the Finder sidebar
You can view the download status in the Finder sidebar (it is shown as a pie chart, but the exact size of the downloaded files will not be visible). To do this, you need to activate the sidebar first.
Be aware that when you drag files from your Mac to iCloud Drive (move), they will disappear from your computer. If you want some files to have local copies on your Mac, you need to download them - click on the cloud icon with an arrow to download.
