I can see the issue is mentioned before many times: but how can I safely delete the local files of my creative cloud folder? 

As I presume now the files are always synchronized with the online storage - so it takes a lot of the local memory. I would like to have my files in the cloud and download them when I need them. It will save me a lot of local space.

Can somebody explain how to do this safely without losing data?

Tnx!

you shouldn't be using sync'd files for that.

 

you would be better off using dropbox or onedrive.  but even that is foolish for anything important unless you have a more secure storage option too (eg, an external hard drive).

that's unwise, but (if that's what you want) use a different cloud service as previously suggested.

Do NOT delete local files from synced services. A well designed sync service will also delete them from the cloud. If you didn't backup that leaves you with nothing at all.

 

Creative Cloud is NOT a way to reduce local disk storage.
