This is driving me crazy too. It just mindlessly fills up my hard drive. Any updates on how to solve this?

I'm sorry the context is missing from your post because it was moved from another forum. If you are downloading from the Adobe Stock site via your browser you can set your browser to prompt you to download or not and what default location the file downloads to.

This is ridiculous. Does Adobe expect us to have endless storage space? Stock photos I don't need are being downloaded and take up 70GB of storage. So after another 5 years I will need like 500GB?

I download stock photos for my design works. All I did was click on download from the Adobe Stock website and I already have the files I need in my specified Windows download folder.

 

Since I already have a copy of the stock photo, I don't need Adobe CC to store a backup copy of EVERYTHING I've downloaded in the past few years locally in another folder. In fact I always delete downloaded copies since I already have them as layers in my PSD files.

 

What is Adobe's reason for this behaviour? Couldn't they just keep a record of my past files on the Cloud?
