File storage on the Adobe Creative Cloud
Once your Adobe Creative Cloud account turns into a “free” account, you will have access to 2GB of cloud storage through Adobe. If you are over this limit of storage, you should download your files to an alternative file storage location. University file storage locations available to you include:
- OneDrive through UConn’s Office 365
- Google Drive through UConn’s Google Apps
- P: Drive through ITS Enterprise File Services
Students can also download their files to an external hard drive.
You can download the files one-at-a-time, or if you have a lot of files and an active Adobe license, you can sync your Adobe Creative Cloud storage to local storage on your computer.
