Hello all,

I am facing a problem with my hard drive storage. Short investigation shows that Adobe XD program is using more than 100GB locally. I can not find the stored files on my computer.
All of my working files are store on Adobe cloud. As far as I can see the stored files looks a bit low than expected only 3.9 GB.

Windows says that Adobe XD is using:

But when I look in the adobe cloud folder - no files are found:

The questions are:
1. Why is happening?
2. How to free up my local computer store and to force Adobe XD to store everything in the cloud

Thank you in advance

Thank you Ares.
I have tried with cc cleaner tool by deleting the adobe creative cloud app and all related apps. But this reduced to only 20GB. So I installed everything again. And uninstall only Adobe XD from the adobe creative cloud app. So basically I did 2 times uninstall on adobe XD. And finally, I managed to free up my space with 120GB.
The last step was to install again Adobe XD from the cc app.

That is good result. Also you can use Windows Disk Clean Up and Defragmenatation  for deleting temp files and optimizing from your system.
