Selective sync for Creative Cloud Files

Please allow to selectively sync folders that are in Creative Cloud Files.

Upgrading the storage plan makes no sense, if your computer doesn't have more than 1Tb storage. Alot of people use laptops with limited storage and use the cloud to store your data as a workaround! 

Without having the option to select folders that you want synced to a computer clogs up your laptop space with files you don't necessary need there.

Je ne pense pas que le but de ce Cloud soit de stocker d'autres documents que ceux issus des applications du Creative Cloud, d'autre nuages sont prévus pour cet usage. Dans l'absolut, je ne pense pas qu'il soit bon de mêler les prunes et les poires si vous comprenez mon point de vue imagé.


I do not think that the purpose of this Cloud is to store other documents than those from Creative Cloud applications, other clouds are planned for this purpose. In absolute terms, I do not think it's good to mix plums and pears if you understand my point of view.

I really don't, tbh.. Creative cloud storage creates a folder that syncs all your files in that folder across all your devices, just like iCloud, Dropbox, oneDrive and countless other cloud storage solutions. All the major ones allow you to select folders you want to be synced on a per-machiene basis (excluding iCloud, but they offload unused files, and manage it in the backgroud, so you can have a 2TB cloud storage, all accesible at any time via network on a 256GB computer).

Why do you think Adobe 1Tb cloud storage that we get with the subscription is another beast? It's not exclusive to photo storage, as other Adobe apps use this same storage (PS libraries, Mobile apps etc...)

Yves probably misunderstood what you meant, but this isn't the place for suggestions about it. On your CC files page https://assets.adobe.com/files is a small question mark which shows a "Share Feedback" menu item. Your request is marked as "on the backlog" at  https://creativecloudassets.uservoice.com/forums/905290-request-features/suggestions/31653889-select...  but add your vote / comment.

The storage problem is exacerbated by the corrupted ancestor metadata bloat problem that adds 5-25mb to every single file you make into a smart object or cloud object in some versions of PS... so a cloud library filled with what *should* be 10kb shape and text objects ends up as a 1gb mess hidden on your OS drive.

That's a separate bug, but very much related to this since it affects the cloud objects' size on disk.
