If you try to drag and drop copy files from iCloud Drive’s Desktop or Documents to a non-Sierra Mac, you’ll see this warning.

To copy files from the iCloud Drive Desktop or Documents folders when using a non-Sierra Mac, you have to hold down the Option key while dragging and dropping, or right-click the file and select Copy, then on your non-Sierra Mac, right-click on the destination and select Paste Item.
