Disable Creative Cloud Sync?

I'm trying to disable the sync functions on my Creative Cloud account without affecting the files for my other team members. 

 

Long story short, I had to work from home for a few days, so I logged into my corporate Adobe Creative Account. It automatically created the sync folder onto my local desktop. Only problem, it's taking up a ton of hard drive space and I need to get rid of these files from my PC but keep them on the shared folders. 

 

Now I know that if I pause syncing, I can delete the files and it won't affect my colleagues also using the synced files from their PCs, but I'm terrified that if I delete them and then eventually start the sync process again (accidentally or intentionally), it's going to delete all of these required work files. How can I prevent that from happening?

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching us. We're here to help. 

Cloud storage syncs your files, folders, Creative Cloud Libraries, and assets across connected devices through your Creative Cloud account. Files available within your Creative Cloud Files folder are automatically synced to the Creative Cloud website. similarly, uploading a file to the Synced files section of the Creative Cloud website or to a mobile app syncs it to the Creative Cloud Files folder on your desktop.

You can either change the location of the sync location to an external hard drive or pause syncing via the Creative Cloud Desktop software to stop taking up space on your hard drive. Please check this article for more info: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/set-sync-options.html

 

Let us know if that helps.

 

Regards,

Tarun
