I have a number of files on my iPad in iCloud Drive that say “waiting to upload.” Some have been like that for weeks. Creating new files, they also become waiting files. Any edit to a file is not uploaded. I thought to disable and re-enable iCloud Drive to reset it, but that warns that any changed files that haven’t uploaded will be deleted! Yikes!

Does anyone else have this problem? And has anyone found a solution?

I’d suggest a full shutdown and restart so as to give the background sync process a kick. But sometimes just switching on airplane mode for a couple of minutes is enough to reset any clogged network queues.
