How does file sync handle changes to files when uploading

Hi team, I hope you're well.

I've not had experience with using Creative Cloud, but am familiar with OneDrive/SharePoint in the Microsoft world.

I have a case where I need a team of people to be able to share and collaborate on Creative Cloud docs - InDesign and Illustrator I believe. And the size of these files can be pretty big.

I know the OneDrive Sync Client will do incremental file upload changes if a part of the file has changed, but if the application writes out a whole new file for every save then it syncs the whole file back. The challenge is, not surprisingly, with working from home and slow broadband links.

Does the Creative Cloud use a sync client to download/upload files to the users machines? And does it only upload changed data, or will it have to upload the whole file. Or, is there some other clever method that it uses?

Thanks for any insight you can offer!
