This is happening again with MacOS Catalina.
This time a folder called "iCloud Drive 2" appeared, and my Desktop is empty, and all my stuff has been moved to this new folder.
What should be done?

My files have been moved to:

/Users/dani/Library/CloudStorage/iCloud\ Drive\ 2

Original

I have two iCloud Drive folders.

Is this normal behaviour?
Can I delete one (how about both)?

Neither of these are your actual iCloud Drive folders where your iCloud Drive data is stored.
If you don't need their contents, you can delete both of them.

iCloud Drive data is stored in ~/Library/Mobile Documents.

  • @Dani I've added the actual location of iCloud Drive data – grg Jan 18 '18 at 11:12
  • I actually cannot find a folder named "~/Library/Mobile Documents" – Daniel Springer Jul 18 at 1:14

When turning iCloud Drive off, files that were contained in iCloud Drive are saved to a newly created folder called "iCloud Drive (Archive)" (if the option to save files is selected when turning iCloud Drive off).

Turning iCloud Drive on and off again will create additional folders, such as "iCloud Drive (Archive) - 1", and so on.
