Open the CC DTA and click the Cloud Icon in the tool bar (Upper right hand side of the window) Then Click the Pause icon.

I have disabled sync, but Creative Cloud gives me a "File syncing error" everytime I start my computer and the red dot stays on the taskbar icon. Any ideas on how to stop this "error"? Thanks.

Does this turn it off permanently? Or will it restart when I restart my computer for example? 

If not, how do you turn it off permanently?

This does not disable file sync it just pauses it. How do you remove Creative Cloud file sync? I have cloud services through another provider, I don't want the service running, and I don't want the CC share shown on my file browser. In previous versions of CC you could disable but this feature has been removed.

In all honesty it doesn't look like you can shut it off entirely but I created a dummy folder with nothing in it to keep it from actually running anything when I do have to restart.  I figured this would be an easier path than trying to remember to pause it constantly.

Is there an update on this to turn it off? Seems odd to only have a pause option.

I have Creative Cloud running on two devices. I use one device for Photoshop where I also utilize Creative Cloud syncing for PSDs, etc. On the other device I use Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Audition for video editing. This computer has limited internal space and I use an external SSD for all project files. I do not want my Creative Cloud files syncing to this computer or to it's eternal SSD. I currently have valuable space taken up by Creative Cloud files on my video computer but I do not want to remove the files from the cloud just so they don't sync to this device. I need the ability to select what device does and doesn't sync to be added to the CC app.

You should be able to pause sync on the device you don't want it to sync on.
