Hi I had a quick question, so I have adobe cc on two devices. 1, on my PC which I use the most to edit premiere Rush and premiere Pro videos. And I have it so that it syncs the files and media to CC. However due to this, I recently noticed that my laptop had nearly no storage left. And most of it was being used up by the files I have synced from my PC. So I went to the CC settings on my laptop and Paused the file syncing. However there are still a lot of files that have been already synced now taking up space on my laptop. So basically, will deleting those files from my laptop also delete them from CC and my pc?

no, if you leave syncing paused. syncing will remain paused unless you unpause it even through computer restarts and cc updates.

correct.

 

but this is a good time to backup your sync'd files so they're secure.  adobe's cloud storage is not such a system.

Ok. So I'll make sure to back it all up. Is there a easy way to select everything in CC and copy-paste it to a external drive? (On Windows 10)

Apparently, I try to delete my file, and it is deleting both files. How about you?

Turns out this CC cloud things is not lifesaving for hardisk storage but it duplicate file multiple times through system, and eat the freespace. It just help for multi device/team editing, but not hardisk efficiency since all the files we put on cloud will cost the hardisk as well.

it's not for file storage.  adobe's cloud files are for collaboration with others and with yourself on other devices.
