Hi people,

Title says it all.

Reinstalled Windows and have 100 GB of files in the Cloud.

Those exact same 100 GB of files are on my HD.

But when I install CC on my new Windows installation and login, it starts downloading that 100 GB.

Not so happy with that since I have a slow connection in my student house 🙂

Can't I tell CC that the files are already here on my HD?

Thanks a million,

Joseph

Hello Abambo,

Thanks for your reply.

The files are in the exact same spot as before my system reinstallation, namely in a separate folder on another HD.

When I pointed CC to the folder after the clean Windows 10 installation, I hoped that it would recognize the files and synchronize the lot, but it didn't.

Instead it renamed the folder to "Creative Cloud Files (archived) (1)", created a new folder "Creative Cloud Files" and started downloading my 100 GB of cloud files in there.

Which is insane since the files are already on my HD.

So I stopped it and then came looking for help here 🙂

Any tips more than welcome.

Thanks,

Jozef
