This has been a constant issue since my team and I have been working remotely.
I have just updated to Big Sur from Catalina as a last ditch effort.
Even on previous operating system, when library both hosted on local drive, and also on external drive, the CC never finishes syncing.
I left my macbook pro on overnight to sync fully and it went from having 98k files to this morning syncing 12 of 24k files.
This is making my time at work 100x slower, and it's totally counterintuative to be constantly having to manually drag files to the web folders just so the other members of my team can access files.
Its much easier to work directly from local files rather than having to download/upload to the web.
I have tried turning off Core Sync, trying forcing quit via activity monitor, unistalled at least 10 times, reset computer at least 15 times (just it the last few days) and have also updated operating system even thought its not compatible with some of our office softwares. Still.... issue after issue.
We're in 2021!!! Why is this STILL an issue!!

We apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.
Kindly rename the core sync folder from the following location "~/Library/Application Support/Adobe" after closing all the creative services using task manager and re-launch the application.
Also, share the version or core sync showing in the creative cloud desktop app.
Thanks for the responce. I left computer on overnight and it slowly got through a bulk of the files, but I'm still not sure if it's finished syncing.
I did the steps outlined above, and reset etc but it's now sitting on syncing without giving me an indication of how many files it's 'sycning'. It's just causing my workload to be 10x slower as I am needing to ensure that I am using the correct files.
Attached is screenshot of CC version, and what the syncing is currently doing.
It seems that the core sync component is not updated. Kindly use the creative cloud cleaner tool to remove the app from the machine and use this link to install the application again: https://shared-assets.adobe.com/link/6e01d226-7f45-493d-571e-61f8e7c609ce
The steps outlined on the repairer say 'Check the sync status of your Creative Cloud files in the Creative Cloud desktop app. Wait for all your files to sync completely.'
But this is the issue. It's not completing the sync. So how can I repair CC when it's not syncing completely, and if I proceed before it's completed, be at risk of losing files?
The files are trying to sync from the cloud to the machine so removing the creative cloud desktop app will not impact your files. Kindly follow the process suggested above and share the update.
Sorry... this is link for log files AdobeLogs_20210311_214628_767-mac.zip
Kindly confirm if you installed the app using the link which I shared earlier?
Kindly share the Adobe logs with us here which is on your desktop with the name of Adobe logs (it will be in ZXP format) so that we can investigate the issue.
The logs aren't on my desktop, but I was sent an automatically generated email which said to reference this file AdobeLogs_20210311_214628_767-mac and it was uploaded to Log Portal. I am trying to run this Log Collector Tool again, but even that is taking its time.

There will be a folder on your desktop with the name of Adobe Logs, kindly attach the file here which is inside that folder so that we can check the details.
In your last update, you mentioned that large files have started syncing so I was under the impression that your issue is now fixed. Let me review the logs and will share an update with you as soon as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience caused to you.
They did, then stopped and got stuck again.
Those logs will now be redundant as I gave up today after speaking to our IT who didn't have any suggestions other than to move location of files back to local drive rather than external hard drive, so I'm now trying to resync them back to my local drive which is where I was having issues original, also due to lack of space on laptop but I've run out of other options.
is there also a reason why you can't download/upload folders? I have a packaged INDD file I need to collaborate on but due to syncing issues, I can't work from local files so have to download each and every individual file rather than be able to download/upload the packaged folder. A 15 minute job it should have been took me 1.5 hours today.
Latest log. I started syncing after relocating my files back locally at 3pm (Australian WST time) and it's now 11pm (Australian WST) and in 8 hours it's only gone from 92k files to 74k files. At this rate, I might be synced in a few weeks.

I would recommend contacting the support team directly so that they can have a remote session to try some troubleshooting. You can contact the support team directly by initiating a chat session, click on the chat icon on the bottom right corner of this page: https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html.
Thank you for your help. I FINALLY got my files to sync.
I ended up contacting my internet service provider after some suggestions on whitelisting from Adobe Support.
Although my service provider couldnt whitelist anything, they did make some changes to my service including 'opted out of CG Nat' and 'unblocked all ports' if that helps anyone going through the same issue as well. It did still take almost 3 full days/nights to sync but we got there.
