I'm am completely fed up with Adobe forcing me to cloud sync my files/libraries every time I install a software update on my machine. How do I switch it off and why does it always reactivate when I install an app update? I wish you would stop pushing processes to me that I do not use in my workflow.

Hi. In the Creative Cloud desktop app preferences, you can Pause/Resume the Syncing anytime.

Thank you.

I've just noticed that CC desktop has changed the way it delivers the app updates and preferences to you, which could explain why it defaulted (to the Adobe preferred option, of course). The newly designed layout of the pop-up window instead of the drop-down menu is predictably obtrusive.

What a horrible way to try and permanently disable something. By "pausing" it? Geeze, between the sneaky ways to get your file info and the hordes of services that run in the background, it seems that Adobe is now in the telemetry business.

I agree - and yes, this post does deserve to be "bumped".

Answer the question please. Pause/Resume is not equivalent to Disable/Enable.
