I use lightroom extensively but still a relative novice in understanding all the nuances of the cloud version of the product. I use the web version of lightroom to upload photos but use the lightroom CC version on my laptop to edit the photos. This past week, I got a red error when editing on the cc version saying my local storage was full. I am confused because i had set photo cache storage to 0%and thought everything was only being stored to the cloud. 


I noticed the sync was running in the background of LR and stopped syncing. That seemed to worked but I am wondering what the sync was doing to eat up space on my hard drive. I also noticed my system files were enormous, at 192GB. Is Adobe saving LR files there?

Mac, Problem or error, Sync
