Please explain clearly what "Creative Cloud Sync" means and give me visibility of everything that's stored in the Cloud!
After installing Creative Cloud on two of my PCs I started to upload files to it. Soon I discovered that a new folder "Creative Cloud Files" was created on both PCs, and everything I'd uploaded to the cloud was also (seemingly) synced to these folders. That defies the purpose of having 1TB Cloud storage. I want to move to the Cloud what I don't have space for otherwise. Opening the "Preferences" page on the Creative Cloud desktop app, I find no way of deciding against syncing files that I upload "back" to my PCs. There's a "Creative Cloud Sync" check box which says ".. stop syncing your files and libraries to Creative Cloud...". It's not fully explained what this means. Will, for example, unchecking this stop photos I add to Lightroom from being stored in the Cloud? What is a "library"? Further, where can I specify that I do NOT want files that I UPLOAD to be copied locally to my other devices? Adding to this, there was no wizard of guide to tell me about these things when I installed Creative Cloud. Another matter is the complete confusion of terms. "Creative Cloud" appears to be an overall brand name for Adobe.. stuff... And also the name of the (actual) Cloud storage service. While most apps are not Cloud-apps at all, they are locally installed. Not to mention that the Creative Cloud storage service is not seamlessly integrated with (for example) Lightroom: Within Lightroom, I do NOT have the option to open a photo from the Creative Cloud (assets)..! Lastly, where can I get the full overview of files that are stored in the Creative Cloud (CLOUD storage)? Looking at my current (default) settings, it appears that everything under my C:\Users[username] folder is synced to the Cloud. Are they? How can I know? There is no "?" button or otherwise any information to explain what "Creative Cloud Sync" means. It would be simple if upon opening the Creative Cloud assets I can access everything that's stored there. But I cannot, for example, see Lightroom files, which (according to some posts on the Net) are indeed stored in the Creative Cloud. How can I know what other files are also stored there?
What happens if I switch syncing off? Will files already synced from my personal folder (?) remain in the cloud?
All in all, "Creative Cloud" is a mess. I deeply regret signing up for it.
To leave a constructive suggestion at the end:
The Creative Cloud assets page is laughable. I can scroll through my photos there, create folders and upload photos. Fine. When viewing photos, there is only ONE option for how to sort them.. "Last modified". No. I don't want it sorted like that. How about "Date created"? (Date picture was taken). More annoyingly, after I scroll around for a photo to open and open it; there is no way of closing the view mode and return to the same scrolling state. The only way is to hit the "back-arrow" button, which brings me to the TOP of the list of photos again.. And I have to scroll back down to continue my browsing. Routinely, "PageUp" and "PageDown" doesn't work for scrolling and the (tiny...!) scroll bar doesn't show. I have to do an ad-hoc browser window resize for both to be "enabled". And yes, why make the scroll-bar so tiny..?
