CC background process like core sync

I've downloaded a few adobe apps and have CC on my MacBook. As battery life is important, I've disabled CC on start up but there are still processes such as core sync, Adobe Desktop Service and others running. Even if I turn off syncing in CC preferences, core sync still runs (I have restarted). Core sync and adobe desktop service are the only two that use up significant energy. How can I stop these running without having to force quit every time?

Given that the thread you refer to is displayed as a) not answered and b) branched into a new discussion, I'm not entirely sure your answer is that helpful. The discussion is also more than three and a half years old. Surely you aren't suggesting that this issue has remained unresolved all this time.

The discussion linked to is now over 4 years old, and I'm having the same problem. Still unsolved! Please, Adobe... I want to use Creative Cloud... it's essential for my work, but I can't afford the unauthorized data hogging Core Sync is causing.

Given that her post is both outdated, irrelevant, and leads to a thread that was never solved, I reported her post.

 It's kind of tragic that a low level development tool like git (with openly available source code) can do flawless cloud file synchronization with maybe 0.1% of the system resources that Adobe is using.  

 

I noticed that at pages 2 and 3 of this thread, https://community.adobe.com/t5/get-started/how-can-i-disable-core-sync-and-updaters/td-p/7581821?pag...  there are now two different posts, instructions for windows and mac, doing system level disablement of these processes.  I think that these posts may have been added informally by some curiously knowledgable engineers in light of the ridiculousness of this.  The mac fix is a single line shell command.  I'll try this on mac and let you know if it blows anything up.

The mac fix worked as expected:

 

- core sync not running on restart. hurray.

- ccxprocess is running

- another remaining cc processes noted, 'core sync helper' which seems benign helper type function.  I found this article to disable core sync helper on mac using system preferences (it's a spanish language stack exchange type board, but the screenshot is helpful anyway) https://manzana.me/questions/343/como-deshabilitar-la-ejecucion-de-la-aplicacion-adobe-core-s.  It turned off core sync helper right away.

- coresync restarted after I loaded DreamWeaver

- I restarted the system after DW loaded and Core Sync was again missing

 

I'm not sure what will happen after an adobe update but as I keep the CC desktop app (and updates) turned off, it should not be a problem to run this shell command when needed.

 

Here's a copy of that post in case it gets deleted:

launch terminal

copy and paste this: launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchAgents/com.adobe.AdobeCreativeCloud.plist

 

restart

done
