Lightroom CC: Don't like that using CC doubles the amount of storage needed

Lightroom CC automatically dumped tons of files into my C: drive using up disk space. Your ap is also too slow and imposible to use with my phone. I'm currently using 8TB space for photo files and use Classic. Your new CC is worthless. I want to remove it. Totally unhappy. This is my feedback for you Adobe.

With a new program it's always important to read as much about it as you can, before jumping to conclusions. Lightroom CC stores its images in the cloud. It can save a copy on your hard drive, but you can set in the preferences how much space it's allowed to use for that. So set that to zero if you don't want it to take any drive space.

Johan, you may be a fan for what you do. How about calculating how much it would cost to store 8TB on your cloud and how long that would take to upload. My limited test set reveals that my C; Drive is packed with  10.54 GB Photo Cache and 89.14 MB "Required Space" on my SSD c: drive with only 3GB in the cloud storage. So you say I should slow down everything (more than it already is) by setting Cache and Required Space to Zero?  That strikes me as the wrong answer my friend. Maybe you are the one who is jumping to conclusions. BTW: This is my feedback for Adobe not a Champion Adobe defender.
