Don't use Creative Cloud file sync as your ONLY backup, you will regret it

Hello guys!

Creative Cloud Syncing is great but it lacks a lot of features compared to other cloud softwares.

Like the fact that it can't store only in the cloud, you have to always have a local copy. And I turned off the folder sync, and after that deleted all files locally. Must've accidentaly turned on syncing because all of my files are missing and can't be restored. It was like 20-40gb and it's sad. 😞

 

Not trying to bash Creative Cloud I could've been more careful it's just sad that it doesn't have any safety features 😞 

Always have multiple backup.

I use a Sata docking station and several 'bare' drives for backup
