I am using Creative Cloud 2015 at work. I want to use this from my home office too but I do not want to use the sync feature as I do not have room on my local drive for 5000+ large files. I want to download few files from CC on a as needed basis, work on them localy, then upload the files back to CC when I am done with editing so that they can be synced and accessed at my work computers. What steps do I need to follow on my home office computer (iMac osX Yosemite) ? I have installed the neccessary CC applications on my home office computer already.

You can Download and install Adobe Creative Cloud apps on your home machine.
Just turn off the Sync feature for the cloud.
With Sync feature turned off, how would I download a file from Creative Cloud or upload a file to Creative Cloud? When Sync feature is turned off (disabled) in the preferences of Creative Cloud Desktop, the Assets tab no longer shows the buttons for opening creative cloud folder or accessing the web. These buttons appear only when Sync is enabled.
You are right.
To access files over the cloud you would need the sync feature.
Hi Sheena, So you are saying it would not be possible to use Creative Cloud the way I am planning to use it from my home office computer? That is I cannot selectively download few files on as needed basis to work from my "home" computer, then when done upload these files back to Creative Cloud to sync with "other computers at work" ?
So the work around may be either to walk around hanging a usb stick on my neck to copy what I need to the stick, work on these files at "home", then when done copy these files back to the creative cloud folder at "work" ; or use a 3rd party cloud service such as Dropbox to follow similar process as with a usb stick? But this will defeat the purpose of having Creative Cloud. Is there not a web access method to Creative Cloud similar to Dropbox that can work without a sync folder or client app. on the desktop?
Kiko, you can download selective files and then upload them as well.
But for that you will need to do that from the web as the desktop app works on syncing feature.
You can login to your Adobe account and under the Assets section you can access your files.
Hi Sheena, You may not be very familiar with the Creative Cloud product and thus not able to provide all the details, but I sincerely thank you for reaching out trying to help me. Upon discussion with a colleague of mine, the following steps seem to answer my question:
