Hello,

I'm on Mac.

I'd like to have backups of caches, etc. directly in the creative cloud but some are still in my document folder in my Icloud.

How do I change?

Thank you in advance for your help,
Julie

I meaning that some elements like After Effect are put in my documents (Icloud) instead of where I want them to be.


The elements that go in the Icloud are :

- User Libraries
- User Presets
- Video Libraries
etc.

You might want to check both your After Effects preferences (Edit > Preferences > Media & Disk Cache) and project settings to see where they are set to save. After that check your iCloud settings to see which directories they are set to backup. It sounds like one of these likely needs to be changed.

Caches are probably the only thing you use which needs no backup... and which should always be on local disk.
