Deleting your media from/within Quik for desktop will delete the same media in the PLUS cloud. Following the file path here, you can locate the media from your computer's storage instead. Deleting from the storage folder does not delete the media in the cloud.
To access (for viewing or editing) your media again, you can download them directly from pus.gopro.com (with the option to download original or compressed resolution) and save them to your computer.

I tried this out.
I used Quik Destop to upload files to the GoPro Cloud.
After everything was uploaded I closed Quik. I then went to the folder in Windows Explorer and deleted the files.
I reopened Quik and the files are not listed in "Me Media" but if you up and click view there are some options for showing "unavailable media" and "cloud media". You can then choose what videos you want to download to the computer to use. Additionally the files still show up at : https://plus.gopro.com/media-library
I added new files to the folder and let it upload them to make sure during the "sync" process it would not delete the cloud files and it does not.
So, yes you can upload your GoPro files to the cloud and delete them on your local machine to save space. You just cannot delete them from within the Quik Desktop App. They really should make it an option within the software, such as when you choose to delete there are some check boxes to choose where to delete from.
