Selectively Sync folders on your computer using Creative Cloud

app-icon-cc-ios Did you know that you can selectively sync folders from Creative Cloud on your computers? Well, you’re in august company; till a few moments ago neither did I! If you’ve been waiting for it, skip the next section and jump ahead. If you’re wondering whether you’ll ever need this, take a minute or two and see why I find it extremely useful.

 

Why I think this is useful?

As you already know, Creative Cloud makes it very easy to share content with others. You can also share folders and collaborate with others and the group can then collectively work on the files in that folder. Using the Creative Cloud app for desktop, you can sync all files to your computer. Desktop sync works really well to keep my files updated on all my connected computers.

In addition to inviting team members to collaborate with me, I also get invited to collaborate with others. On accepting the invitation, I get access to the shared folder, and all the files get synced to my computers. Now, at any given time, I’m a driver on only a couple of projects. I contribute to a few, but am kept in the loop about the whole bunch of work that the team is doing. I’m usually not interested in syncing all shared folders on my computers. For example, I don’t want to sync especially large projects on my laptop. I’ll never work on them from home or on the move. They’ll just eat up space and bandwidth. This feature gives me the ability to selectively sync the folders I am interested in, on a particular computer.

Earlier, it was either all or nothing. Now, I can selectively sync folders. And you can too :-)

Selectively Sync folders

To selectively sync folders, you need the following:

  • The latest version of the Creative Cloud app for desktop app
  • File Sync is ON
  • At least one accepted invitation to join a collaboration.
  • That’s about it.

Open Finder or Explorer and right-click on Creative Cloud Files, and then deselect the folders you don’t want to sync.

That’s it. However, if you need extra details, see How to choose which folders to Sync.

Btw, the Creative Cloud desktop app does a lot more than just sync files and folders. To learn more, see Creative cloud for desktop help page.

Creative Cloud and Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10)

totem-creative-cloud-80x80Apple announced the general availability of Mac OS X Yosemite today. The natural question to ask is, should I upgrade or not? Will my existing software work? Will my Creative Cloud apps continue to work?

 

Adobe and Apple have worked closely together to test Adobe Creative Cloud applications for reliability, performance and user experience when installed on Intel based systems running OS X Yosemite (v10.10). The latest versions of all Adobe CC products are compatible. In addition to the current Photoshop CC release (2014.2), the Photoshop team has also tested Photoshop CC (14.2.1) and CS6 (13.0.6; 13.1.2) for compatibility.

Read the complete OS Compatibility and FAQs for Yosemite.

As with any new release of an OS, there may be unexpected issues that arise that were not discovered during testing. If you encounter any issues, please report them using the bug reporting form.
