Last Wed I got this error after opening CC Desktop:
Could not enable sync. Creative cloud need to rename your folder "Creative Cloud Files" to enable syncing. Please close any open documents or restart your machine and try again.
I had not documents open. I restarted the PC but to no avail. I didn't need anything to be synced at the time so I let it go. Thursday and Friday all was fine. Today I am getting the error again. I have been having a lot of issues with CC Desktop signing out every time I shut off the PC. I have to uninstall the app, delete the recommended files and re-install. All works fine after that, except now I can't sync files, and off course, today I need to sync some of the work I did over the weekend.
Online search was no help.
Windows 10, Dell XPS 8900, 16MB Ram.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the help, but I had already gone through all of these and there do not address this issue.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
We are looking in to this issue, While we make efforts to understand the root cause, the local logs from your machine would help us speed up our investigation.
I know this has been out there for a while but I found something that made a change today. I looked in my users folder and found that there were 5 archived Creative Cloud Files folders. I deleted them and tried to sync, and it is now working. This is after searching the forums, and spending around two hours with the help desk, who said it was a Microsoft Issue. It is still in the process of syncing so I am not sure it works, but it is much farther than it has been in months.
I hope this helps someone.
Thanks for sharing that info. Please let us know if you continue to have issues syncing.
It did help! It helped me today! Your 2 hours of effort resolved my issue in 5 minutes, so thank you
