CoreSync Takes All My Bandwidth

CoreSync literally takes up all my bandwidth, drastically slowing or even preventing Web browsing while it is on. Quitting Creative Cloud and Photoshop has no effect. Ending the process in Task Manager works for less than a minute until it restarts itself. IN order to get on the Internet, I renamed the CoreSync folder temporarily, but I need a fix for this. Windows 7.

CoreSync should be handling synchronization of your CreativeCloud files and downloaded extensions.

The bandwidth it uses can be limited in the Creative Cloud application.

But until it finishes syncing your files, it can use all the available bandwidth.

Why does it continue to do so even when not busy synchronizing files? Even when I quit the application and end the process in Task Manager? I had to disable the folder to get my Web access back. Where in the app can I limit bandwidth?

Okay, I found out where to limit bandwidth or shut off syncing. Thanks, Chris.
