I just discovered today that my creative cloud is significantly draining my battery life.  Can someone please help me with tips to combat this problem?  I have a MacBook Pro 2014 13 inch.  Apple told me that the best they thought I could do was 'pause file syncing' unless I completely uninstall the application.  Can I download Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere, and InDesign without the cloud?

Hi,

In my case it is a Mac, so the location of the file may be slightly different.

 

1. Pause Syncing.

2. On the Activity Monitor, Quit Core Sync.

3. Delete the CoreSync folder.
/ Users / User Name / Library / Application Support / Adobe / CoreSync

4. Delete the cache_config.xml.

5. Restart PC and Resume Syncing.
This solved the problem.

I've just bought a Macbookpro 16'' (Catalina 10.15.6) and I have the same problem of draining battery when I'm using Adobe Creative Cloud. Do you have any solution for that ?

 

And can you give me the standard "avg energy impact" that need an Adobe application (like Photoshop for example) in the activity monitor ?

 

Thanks a lot for your help !
