When my daughter and I save a PDF file to our laptops, another copy is also being saved on the other one's system away at school 120km away. We have never used each others system nor understand how this is happening. Any ideas how to stop this?

Thank you in advance,

Dad-Sara

Does you save the files in the Document Cloud?

Are you using the same Adobe ID (login) for both computers? Do you have a shared subscription to something?

 

You say it is saved to the other person's computer. In exactly which folder is it saved?

This doesn't sound like Adobe's stuff, because even when you share files, it doesn't use your desktop. It sounds like some other kind of file sharing or backup system you both have, and have accidentally signed in with the same account. Does it happen only with PDF files, or also with other files saved? If it's only PDFs, what app do you save your PDFs from?
