Hey!
My name is Sasha and I use my Creative Cloud daily. However, I have a question. Why does Creative Cloud use the space on my hard drive? I recently bought a laptop and already the memory is almost full. Note that I have not saved any files on my computer other than programs. And have chosen to collect all my files on Creative CLoud. Is there a way to fix the problem?

All programs are installed on your computer hard drive, they do NOT run from the cloud

Your Creative Cloud space is not a replacement for adequate HD space.  The CC folder resides on your primary drive and syncs to cloud storage for collaborating and syncing to other devices.  You also need sufficient free space for Photoshop's scratch disk.  So if you're low on local hard disk space, consider buying an external HD.
