Lightroom CC Library allows storage all my photos in Creative Cloud Library, even if there is not enough room on my hard drive for all my photos. Is this feature also available with Creative Cloud Files storage?

If I storage and sync all my photos in Creative Cloud Files, then I need the exact same amount of free space on my own hard drive?

If syncing is enabled, CC does sync everything locally. Else you need to upload via the web like any off-line storage space.

Automatic syncing ensures synchronization as soon as connected to the net, so that the files are available when needed.

Creative Cloud is in this sense comparable to Dropbox.

Microsoft's oneDrive allows for offline files. But I suppose Microsoft files are generally smaller, so syncing is not so much of an issue.
