What happens if I exceed my storage quota?

The Creative Cloud desktop app syncs up to 1 GB over your quota from any device. After that, new files no longer sync, and you're notified that you are over quota. A red exclamation point indicates files that can't be synced. You can still move, rename, or delete files. 

Maximum number of files and folders

You can store as many files and folders as your cloud storage allows, but you cannot sync more than the following number of files and folders:

  • 350,000 files
  • 150,000 folders

This doesn't include the files, folders, or sub-folders shared with you by others. Also note that files and folders you haven't deleted permanently still count toward your cloud storage. 

Delete files permanently to free up cloud storage

Ensure that your deleted files aren't using valuable storage by deleting them permanently. Learn how to permanently delete files to free up storage.

To continue to sync files, and save more files on the cloud upgrade your storage.

How do I upgrade my cloud storage?

If you need more storage, you can purchase extra storage plans through your Adobe ID account. For instructions, see:
