Creative Cloud storage is NOT a replacement for hard drive space. Creative Cloud is not a dedicated cloud backup service like Dropbox or Google drive.
The Creative Cloud Files folder on your hard drive is a synced repository for files you wish to share -- with colleagues or other devices. Suggest you move synced Creative Cloud Files folder to another disk drive or if you can, get a bigger primary hard disk.

There are three main types of Cloud file access for end users.
1. Special apps to send files and get them back. Like old-fashioned FTP client, or an app which quietly puts info on the cloud.
2. Mapped network files. A drive letter or folder is actually files on the cloud, just like sharing with a local file server.
3. Synchronized folders. A folder on your computer is automatically kept the same as a folder on the cloud server. The files are in 2 places. (This is not a backup solution!)
Creative Cloud, used in this way, is type 3.
But -- anyway -- before thinking about using any cloud for storage -- you need to first think about backups. Some people read the word "Cloud", think of the phrase "Cloud backup" they read somewhere, and think then that putting stuff in the cloud means they never need to think about backups again. This is a disaster waiting...
Indeed I am ok with you on the fact of not using the cloud as storage. Our remote server is down, I was looking for a backup solution while waiting. We work as a team and the creative Cloud seemed interesting to save and share our current projects...
