iCloud Drive is a syncing service and by default keeps a local copy on your Mac drive.
To reduce the space needed on the drive, turn on the Optimize storage option. See the information below from Add your Desktop and Documents files to iCloud Drive - Apple Support
ICloud Drive le permite guardar archivos y datos de aplicaciones en iCloud Disponible para dispositivos iOS, Mac y PC con Windows Le permite acceder a todos sus archivos y datos desde cualquier.
(and note that while the information is in the Desktop and Documents support article, the Optimize option is available even if you are using iCloud Drive without turning on Desktop and Documents option)
Store your files in iCloud and save space on your device
The files that you keep in iCloud Drive use your iCloud storage. And as long as you have enough space in iCloud and on your device, you can store as many files as you like.
If you need more space on your device, iCloud Drive can help. On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences. Click Apple ID, then click iCloud. On macOS Mojave or earlier, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click iCloud. Turn on Optimize Mac Storage. Then your Mac keeps all of your recent files on your computer, but keeps your older ones only in iCloud, ready for you to download when you need them again. If you want to free up more space on your Mac, follow these steps. On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can search and browse files from all of your devices and download them only as you need them.
You can also free up space on your device and in iCloud Drive when you delete files. Then go to your Recently Deleted folder in the Files app or on iCloud.com and delete the files there. Before you delete anything, make sure that you back up the files that you still want. When you use iCloud Drive and delete a file on one device, it deletes on your other devices too. iCloud removes the files from every device that you're signed in to with the same Apple ID.

Hi, I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max running iOS 13.4. My carrier is T-Mobile. When I go into the Files app, I’m presented with a big blue button that says 'Turn on iCloud Drive.'
When I press that button, it takes me to the iCloud panel in Settings. In that panel is a switch to turn on iCloud drive. When I flip the switch on and it turns green, it opens up a screen that says 'Upgrade to iCloud Drive.'
The problem is that the actual 'Upgrade' button doesn't do anything when pressed, and neither does the 'Cancel' button. They are also overlapping each other.
I am now stuck and unable to activate or access my iCloud Drive. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Any help would be appreciated. I have enclosed a screenshot of the three screens in question:Thank you!
