I have my Creative Cloud Files located in a second internal drive of 4 TB. But one day, I want to delete many of them BUT KEEP THEM on the CLOUD of Creative Cloud (sorry for the redundancy). Is there a corect way to do it? If I delete something locally, automatically will be deleted from the Cloud too? I want to keep them on the Cloud as a kind of “backup” or “saved for later”, or maybe... the Creative Cloud was no thought for that purpose, and should I use another cloud storage service? I know that I can expand the storage capacity on Adobe CC through extra payment, but my concern regards more to the functionality of the CC. Thanks a lot.

Your Creative Cloud storage is NOT a replacement for primary hard drive space. It's for sharing files with other apps, devices and colleagues.  If you want to maintain backup files, please use a dedicated backup & recovery service like DropBox, Google Drive or Backblaze.

Thanks @Nancy OShea, very clear and accurate. And yes, I do have Backblaze as online backup and also mediafire (which is like the competition of Dropbox and Google Drive).
