  • (Edited)
Am trying to find the advantage to sync settings other than have two installations of CC. If my system crashes does it let me recover settings or is it for just keeping two separate installations in sync. TIA

Sync settings in Photoshop is the process of uploading your settings to the cloud, and downloading them again on another system, or the same system if you have to restore the settings. And it can sync to any number of systems under your Adobe ID.
