This question already has an answer here:

I want to load some big Datasets on my computer. However, I don't want iCloud to try and upload those into my iCloud Drive. It would take forever, and I do not need the data on another machine.

Is there a way to deselect this folder such that it does not try to upload?

  • Just put the dataset in a folder outside of ~/Documents. – nohillside Feb 10 at 19:14
