Hey guys,

I have a pc with a small SSD and Adobe is feeling my Drive with +60GB of media files

from the adobe cloud. (to Users\username\AppData\... adobe ... Creative cloud libraries\LIBS)
I tired deleting the folder, but it keeps downloading again after every restart!


It's filling the drive so much windows can't keep working (13MB! left) is there a way to prevent 
that of make it download to a diffrent drive??)

Already Disabled Sync and changed the Folder to another drive. Didn't help.. HELP?

yes, open your cc desktop app on the problematic pc

click file>preferences>synching and select the folder (cannot be a drive root) you want to use:

if you've done that (and selected an allowable folder), show a screenshot similar to above.

Thanks for the Quick answer!
I already changed that in the same place.
the folder's location ther is D:\Adobe

but still it saves it to C: User's folder.
I also Paused the Sync, with no effect.

that's just your sync folder do you have other cc files?  ie, open your cc app, click the cloud icon at the upper left and then click cc web.  check the various folders (including deleted) and lightroom.

There's a lot of libraries filled with graphical assets.(about 60GB worth)
That's what's auto-downloading and filling the HD till it's end.

I'm looking for a way to prevent that.

Are you sure this is normal CC just blindley fill the Hard drive with no regards to free space?
It only stops when the disk has 14MB!! left, and windows starts showing errors and crushing.

Sounds like a bug of somthing
