Core Sync causing fans to kick on and using CPU energy

I have seen a lot of other posts about this but haven’t seen any real resolution. Whenever Creative Cloud syncs files my fans kick on crazy loud and my computer is heating up. To the point I think over time this will affect my machine. This is even when only a few files sync, whenever Core Sync kicks on it just hogs up all resources.

I am on a 2019 MacBook Pro running OS X 10.15.2 and latest versions of Creative Cloud software. 


I had a remote session with Adobe and we tried the following:

  • Re-installed Creative Cloud
  • Ran Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool
  • Deleted cache files


All of this did not fix this at all. It is 100% being caused by Core Sync. It starts and stops with this application/process.  


Is there a fix? Thanks in advance.
