I've been having tons of trouble with syncing lately, and just today I deleted all the coresyn .db files, and finally it seems things are syncing again. However, I now have these huge files within the application support folder in the library user system folder (I'm on a mac). In both the Coresync folder and the XD folder within the application support, the files in the DCX folders are taking up a ton of space.

What are these? Do I need them?

 

/Users/*****/Library/Application Support/Adobe.XD/com.adobe.dcx folder is 1.3GB

/Users/*****/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CoreSync/DCX folder is 13.86GB

 

My internal drive is only 250GB, so storage is at a premium. What are these log and database files taking up so much space and what can I do to fix this?

I too am having the same issue. but my DCX folder is 124.84GB. My computer is almost full - how do I downsize this DCX folder? Do I remove items from my CC Libraries that are syncing?

I'm having the same issue and constantly running out of space. 

Seems a bit pointless having a cloud option but still saving all this data to the HDD
