    Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask my question.
    The backup for my documents are taking up to much room, where can i see just what is inside the backup file and can i just delete some of the files?

    I believe you go under the following:
    1.Settings
    2.Apple ID, iTunes, App Store, which should be the first line under settings
    3. iCloud
    4. Manage storage
    You should then be able to manage files from there. Hope this helps.

    It’s not possible to remove single files from a backup. You’d have to disable backing up an app, if you wish to retrieve iCloud storage space.

    Go to Settings - your name - iCloud - Storage - Manage Storage - Backups - your iPhone (if there’s more than one Apple device connected to iCloud) - Choose Data to back up, and disable all the apps that don’t need to be backed up.
