CC files saved in local storage in all my devices - not enough free space

Hi, I have CC enabled on my PC and I just bought a Mac and connected it to the cloud as well. What I just realized is that all my files that I have on the pc are not only in the cloud but have been saved on my laptop and are taking up a ton of space.
If I delete the files from my laptop are they deleted from the cloud or from my pc?
Is there a way to delete all the files on my pc from the cloud saved on my laptop at once? How can I avoid that the new files that I will be saving on my laptop are also saved on my laptop and leave me without space? Thanks in advance

if your intent is to remove and stop files being added to your lap top, just disable file syncing (by clicking files>preferences>syncing>pause syncing) on your laptop and then delete the wanted files on your laptop.

Thank you!

So once I disable sync, I can delete the documents that have been stored in my Mac's memory, right? Well, I want to delete the 30GB. Do I have to delete the documents one by one?
Even if I delete them, will I still have access to all these files when I connect from my PC? What happens if I delete all the archived data on my laptop and re-enable sync? Will they download again? Thanks in advance.

you can delete files on your cc mac files just like any other files.

 

the files sync'd prior to pausing the sync will be available to any computer with an internet connection, signed in and sync'd with your adobe id.
