In the past, I could delete a file from my Creative Cloud, and it would go into the deleted folder in CC. On my PC, it would be in the recycle bin only if I didn't shift+del the file. I could then recover files from the deleted folder if necessary.
Fast forward to this new Creative Cloud desktop version. I logged in to recover a file only to discover files in there that had NEVER been in my CC. Files and folders that I had deleted from an external hard drive. Excel and Word files. HOW DID THEY GET THERE??
I've looked everywhere for a setting which would give/deny CC access to my PC’s recycle bin, but there is nothing. What makes matters worse is that I regularly use two PCs. My personal PC uses my personal CC account, and my work PC uses my work CC account. The files from the work PC’s recycle bin are showing up while logged into my personal CC account in the browser!!!!
Who thought this would.be a good idea? Why is CC accessing my recycle bin?
I don't think that Adobe CC syncs your local bin to the cloud, except if the bins disk space is part of what needs to be synced. I would avoid that.
If something is deleted it's probably not moved into a different repository but it get's simply flagged as deleted and a reference to the file is sent to the bin. It may well be that deleted files in the CC deleted repository are synced locally to the bin.
There may also be a different handling as introduced by a Windows update recently. It's always difficult to asses where the different behaviour comes from.
