Recently I have been having a recurring problem with the public links not working, it regularly results in a "this page is not available" message.

Unzipped files seem to be ok: Adobe Creative Cloud

But not zipped ones: Adobe Creative Cloud

This has only started since I updated I think (Version 4.2.0.211), until recently it has always worked flawlessly, any ideas?

I have a similar issue but a little different. You can get to the page but you cannot download any public shared file. Once you click download it ends up with various errors. I do not have any zipped files, but the files effected are larger than 1gig. Earlier in the day the link itself would not work, but that seems to be resolved leaving the download issue. I have tried several computers and the client also is unable to download.

Hi ;Dooley,

I know we had some kind of storage outage about 10-12 hours ago but I think that is resolved now. Are you still seeing the error if you share a file which wasn't shared previously or if you stop sharing and create a new link for files which were giving the error previously?

Thanks,

- Dave

I have gone through all the steps you outlined including the following:

deleted public link and added a new link

deleted the file and then re-uploaded

uploaded a different large file

tried multiple computers and all of the normal browsers

I also tried to download on mobile which I use frequently to test out crappy speakers ;D

The client also tried multiple times and could not get the download to work on any of the larger files. I was having issues early this morning with the link being broken, but that has been resolved. It is the download feature that is giving me trouble. A few additional notes:

I have a file folder with smaller files below 1gig and they will download. The issue seems to be happening on the larger files. I know that it was working the last time I checked which was probably a couple weeks ago. I did notice that the mobile and client side window is different so assume an update has occurred on the server side. I have received a few different errors throughout the day, one is "503 error timeout on first byte", also "the file cannot be found on the server", and the weirdest behavior on Edge where it tries to download the file except it appends ".txt" and thinks it is downloading a text file but then throws a this file cannot be downloaded error.

I appreciate your help!

Thanks for the additional details and testing. I've passed on details to our engineering department to further investigate, hopefully we can get it sorted soon.

Same problem.  Customer support is a nightmare.  Obviously Adobe problem.  Contacted multiple times over a week or so, and no help what so ever.

Clients can't download.   Seems to have been a problem for years.  Service help is terrible.  NO ANSWER!

another addition to the issue. I keep notes on computer issues and happened to look at them last night and noticed an entry regarding the crearive cloud that had completly slipped my mind. I was having a very similar issue a little over a year ago and I ended up getting a call from one of your engeneers directly. They had stated that something had happened to my account on the server and they had to  adjust my account on adobe's side to get it working again.

It had slipped my mind because at that time your support process was much different and it was resolved in a matter of hours not days like this time. Is there a record on adobe's end that references old support requests? If there is my bet is that the solution was noted. Any chance you can take a look David_B?

Major issues for me also sharing public links to files from CC:

We use shared links for peeps to 'see' the artwork and comment on it within the browser, like a PDF artwork or PSD file.

The zip file method won't help me and my team of 22 peeps.

Dooley,

I requested someone from support to contact you. I was able to upload larger files but they were uploading slow. I wasn't able to reproduce the error 503.

IRESS Marketing UK,

I was able to reproduce the issues with the collaborated files name being listed as unknown and having the file name changed to a long string of characters when shared and downloaded. I've reported both issues to the engineering team and know they are working on addressing them.

Personally, I was seeing issues with slowness and issues with pages appearing "Page Not Found" or showing as "temporarily unavailable". It often would load if I refreshed the page. I know engineering is actively working on getting all these issues addressed as soon as they can.

Thank you for continuing to work on this. I was on with chat for hours this morning and they were unable to get it to work as well. One file miraculously started working again but then failed a few minutes later making the rep think it was my computer.

Again I really appreciate the help!

Thanks for the reply. Hopefully your chaps will find a fix soon, until then I have to use alternative sharing platforms.

I did have contact with one chap from Adobe Support who controlled my screen and saw the issue. He gathered up a log and he tried to grab the files via the screen control system, but this crashed every time. I have tried to email files but they are too big... I have his email but won't display here. He has replied but with no alternative solutions of how to send log files to Adobe, I would CC but public shared links don't work

Currently I have nearly 44 people across my global design team with major issues with public shared files with CC.

I'm not happy with the extra work this issue has caused for my team.

Any ideas when Adobe engineers will fix this major issue with sharing public files?

Hi Dave,

I'm no longer seeing unknown myself when I share a link to a collaborated asset. Does it occur for you for all files including a newly shared file?

Thanks,

- Dave

Nearly two months and it's still not working properly.

I had contact from these two chaps (listed below) from Adobe (both remotely logging in getting log files etc) who promised to get in touch with a fix but never did.

Gurdeep Singh <gusingh@adobe.com> and Akash Dwivedi <akdwived@adobe.com>

The total lack of any kind of support is utterly astounding, and I have team account with Adobe CC.

A truly terrible CX from Adobe.

Very disappointed.

I too have been experiencing issues with Public files on the cloud. I am getting the "Unkown" message with a generic page icon (screen grab attached). These are not large files, 100-200 mb .WMV files. I just noticed a peculiar thing while viewing the creative cloud files via web browser:

When viewing a list of files within a folder, and select or check the box next to a particular file and use the link at the top of the page that says "send link", I get a certain public link for sharing. BUT... when on the actual page for that particular file, on the right side it lists a "Public Link " - and it shows a DIFFERENT link.

The l link i initially had copied, which worked at first but no longer works, is the same link that appears on the page.

Now when i test the link from the file list, that one works.

Screen grabs attached for reference.

Why is it giving two different public links for the same file, and which should work/ should be shared?

file list link: works

AdobeCloud-FileList-SendLink.PNG

Page public link: doesn't work

Actually, the file links were working this morning but now they aren't. Still an issue.
