While upgrading to macOS Sierra I accidentally enabled storage of my Desktop & Documents Folders in iCloud. I quickly reversed that by disabling the option, then moving my files back to their place on my local drive.
Even though the option is now disabled on all my macOS account, I still cannot delete the Desktop and Documents folders from iCloud Drive. No matter what I do, they keep coming back moments after being deleted.
I tried the following with no success:
- Delete the folders from the affected macOS account;
- Delete the folders from another macOS account connected to the same iCloud account (I never enabled the option on this account);
- Turn off the MacBook and delete the folders from Files on iOS;
- Delete the folders from icloud.com;
No matter what I do, these two folders keep coming back moments later. This leads to the Dektop and Documents folders local to my MacBook being renamed to
Desktop — Local and
Documents — Local respectively, which is quite annoying.
How can I delete these two folders from iCloud Drive?
