Local Creative Cloud Roaming Files taking up way to much space on C drive.

I have a PC with 2 hard drives. The first meant to be the boot drive for windows to easily start-up and the second for everything else. I have set CreativeCloud to install apps to my D drive and to sync to my D drive.

 

However, there is a huge chunk still contained on my C drive: 

C:\Users\name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Creative Cloud Libraries\LIBS\##########_AdobeID\links

It is housing a files that contain up to 24kb to 420MB. I did try to delete this but it just comes back. How do we stop this from happening?

 

I searched through and found some posts related to this but there doesn't seem to be a solid solution. Maybe I missed something. Can someone please help?

i think most of that storage is taken by image and 3d model files in a subdirectory of public.adobecc.com which service no useful purpose (as far as i can tell).  mine is nearing 1 gb:

rename that subdirectory (on my computer it's "components") to something easy to restore (eg, "$components").

 

create a new subdirectory with the original name (eg, "components") and make it read-only.

 

test to see if there any problems and to see if that prevents adobe from creating a different subdirectory storing more useless files.
