I've been having trouble with the internet connection to my desktop PC for a while, but finally got it fixed and was able to run the update to the Creative Cloud desktop app. It was getting stuck for a while, but after reading around a bit I went into the OOBE folder, deleted the contents, and the update was able to complete.
I let my files sync overnight, but when I went to work on some recent pieces that never synced while the connection was down, they were deleted. They're not anywhere in the CC folder and they're not in my recycle bin, which I would think would be the benefit of even having them both locally on the machine and synced to the cloud? So that they're backed up on a hard drive?
