Hello.
1. The "dedicated" folder of Creative Cloud Files that we find in our machine, area really occupies space of our local drive?

2. Why takes so long log time tu upload files? I understand that my files can be too big but even so, hours to upload?

Thanks a lot.

It's not clear what you mean. You have not provided any useful technical info about your system, your Internet connection and otehr things.

I see that locally I have a folder for the Creative Cloud files, with the cloud icon printed on the folder. Repeat: This folder is located on my compuer. So, if I want to upload 5 GB files. I drag my files to this folder and the synchronization will start, right? My question is if, besides the 5GB which will occupy the Adobe Cloud, those 5GB files will also be "duplicated", "saved" in the local hard drive, spceifically in the any hard drive of my Computer? U uso iMAc iCore 7, High Sierra. thank U.

well, of course I want keep those files locally but no in the Creative Cloud Files. I though that they could be a kind of "aliases" which refer to the files stored oncloud. And additionally to that, having the local file somewhere else locally. I try not to duplicate space in the local hard drives for northing. Thank U.

If the files placed within the Creative Cloud Files folder are actual duplicates of the originals and are taking up disk space than this isn't a viable solution. Is there no way to just upload files to Adobes cloud service for storage?

Great point. Why pay for cloud space if it will duplicate the files on my laptop and my cloud space with Apple? I want to be able to store the files in the cloud without them being on my drive.
