I am actually in disbelief that I am writing this post. But here is the issue at hand. I want to start using the Cloud to link my media to projects which I am sharing with other people, with the end goal of avoiding offline media on my timeline. However, to my surprise, when I try to upload entire folders to the cloud that is not possible. Am I forced to upload each assett individually. Media organization takes a long time already in your personal drive but I am forced to upload stuff individually (or many photos, videos, PNGs at a time) but then I have to recrate the folders in the drive all over again. It is inconvenient and adds hours of unecessary work. For example, I can drag and drop and entire folder in a Google Drive. How is this not already an option for Cloud users? I spoke with a technical support person from Adobe who offered me no solutions. Is there a way around this? Thank you.
Cloud storage web assets, Collaboration, File sync
Despite its name, Creative Cloud Storage is NOT a dedicated cloud backup service like DropBox or Google Drive.
When I want to share files with colleagues or other devices, I save files to my local Creative Cloud Files folder which is automatically synced to my cloud space. The shared files are then available for download by other devices or people I designate.
When you say you want to "avoid offline media from your timeline," I'm not sure what that means. Can you elaborate?
