Solved How to move document from iCloud to store on hard drive

Specs: Macintosh
I have a number of documents and photos on the iCloud drive. I don't want them filed there and would live to move/copy them to my laptop's hard drive, eventually filing them on a flash drive. Any suggestions on how to do this?

I wouldn't rely on storing them long term on a flash drive/usb-stick.

If you want to be reasonably sure they are safe (as in not only on your hard drive) copy them to DVD and ideally even another external hard drive too.

Flash drives are not intended for serious/long term storage.They're more for convenience of transferring files when on the move; knowing they are also safe on more secure media elsewhere.

Flash drives can (and will inevitably) fail one way or another...; and then you've lost whatever is on them (unless they are safe/secure copies as above).
