CC: Do deleted files go to the trash on every device?

Hello there,

I'm relatively new to CC so just a quick question which I hope can be resolved quickly!

I have an iMac (my main machine) and a Macbook Pro. A little while a go I deleted lots of files from my CC, to free up space. (I moved them to an external hard drive as I didn't want to permanently delete them). I did this on my iMac.

I have since noticed my Macbook Pro is running out of hard drive space, and I've just seen there's lots of files in the trash. A lot of them look to be the files from Creative Cloud. I did not put the files in the trash from my Macbook Pro though, so I was wondering: would they be the files I deleted on my iMac? Even though I deleted them from CC on the iMac, would they also go to the trash on my Macbook Pro? I just want to make sure files haven't mysteriously been sent to the trash on my Macbook Pro without my knowledge.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Many thanks,
