Selective sync doesn't work in single CC account, multiple machine scenario

Why oh why do I have to have shared a file with someone else to enable selective sync? This is just the most arbitrary short-sighted implementation of selective sync one can imagine. Here's the scenario, I have a desktop with terabytes of storage, now I want to do some work on my laptop, since I log into both machines with the same Creative Cloud account (As I have to if I want my software to be licensed) I would like to selectively sync some files (laptops are low on space Adobe) but I can't do it because you're not allowed to selectively sync your own folders?

Why don't you guys just look at the way dropbox does it and copy them instead of trying to imagine what kind of scenarios your users would be faced with with and then implementing arbitrary rules that hamstring us?

Is there a way around this? I need my files on my laptop but it's only got a SSD drive which can't store the entire content of my CC account.

This question should not be marked as having the correct answer. Sharing to a link that doesn't answer the question, just some arbitrary FAQs does not constitute the "correct answer"
