Turn off local storage with creative cloud?

I have CC on two computers: a macbook and a desktop pc. My pc has a huge amount of storage, and its where I do most of my work. My laptop is for when I'm in class or in the studio, and it has only a small amount of space which is constantly running out. For this reason, I try to keep all of my large files on my PC. However, whenever I save a file to the creative cloud, it stores the file locally on both my pc and laptop. To be clear, I love having access to my files on my laptop, but I much prefer the way icloud works, where you have access to all of your files but they only download to your computer when you tell them to. Is there any way to set creative cloud to not store files locally on a single computer?

I agree with Design GGOCC's suggestion

If you had sync turned on on your PC, it would sync the contents of the Creative Cloud Files folder to your Creative Cloud storage but keep sync turned off on your Macbook and just download any files you wanted or need via a browser from Adobe Creative Cloud

Wouldn't using the Creative Cloud Desktop app solve your problem? Turn sync off in the preferences of the app on your laptop, but keep it on for your PC.

I haven't been able to find such option on latest version of CC, OS X (Mojave)... All i find in the syncing options is the folder and speed, but no chance to turn it off.

If you turn off the sync and work on a file on your laptop, do you then have to manually upload the change back into the Cloud?
