I am a One-Man-Band Graphic Designer operating from a home-office business. I have been using CC File Syncing since the Get-Go.
My question is: What is the value of using CC File Syncing? How do YOU, as a Graphic Artist use this feature and is it really necessary?
So far, I have never had the need to access any of my files stored in the CC Folder on another device or work remotely.

CORRUPTED FILES!
Recently I had the frustrating experience of having an epic failure with syncing. I went to work in the CC folder only to discover that many of my work files where missing!

After several hours online with support we eventually discovered that the entire folder had been moved to my "Home" folder on my HD and renamed: "Creative Cloud Files (unknown)".

We're talking hundreds of graphic files in several folders! That was a few months ago and I am still migrating the missing lost files from the "unknown" folder back into the active CC folder.

I am considering discontinuing the use of File Syncing.
