Your Adobe Creative Cloud account comes with online storage so that your assets are available to you anywhere and on any device or computer. You can preview many creative asset types directly in a web browser on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. These asset types include: PSD, AI, INDD, JPG, PDF, GIF, PNG, Photoshop Touch, and many others.
The Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app keeps all the assets in sync. Any additions, modifications, or deletions are reflected on all connected computers and devices. For example, if you upload
Your Work includes files synced with your desktop, assets created using Creative Cloud–enabled mobile apps, and Creative Cloud libraries. You can browse all of these assets using Your Work, which organizes assets as follows:
- Files: Shows all your source files categorized into the following tabs:
- Synced Files: Shows assets synced with the Creative Cloud Files directory on your desktop.
- Cloud Documents: Shows your XD cloud documents.
- Mobile Creations: Shows assets created using Creative Cloud enabled mobile apps.
- Libraries: Shows design libraries created by you.
- Published: Shows artifacts of your source files - prototypes and design specs created in Adobe XD, and 3D scenes created in Adobe Dimension.
- Shared with You: Shows the folders, and prototypes and design specs shared with you.
- Deleted: Shows your deleted Creative Cloud synced files.
To sync assets from your computer, do one of the following:
- Copy, paste, or move assets to the Creative Cloud Files directory on your desktop.
- In an app, choose File > Save or File > Save As and navigate to the Creative Cloud Files directory.
To open the Creative Cloud Files directory from the Creative Cloud desktop app, select File > Open Sync Folder or Files > Open Folder, depending on your version of the Creative Cloud desktop app.
Filenames that contain special characters such as |, ", ?, <, >, /, *, or : are not synced. Nor are files with reserved names, such as AUX or Com1. If you receive an error, rename the asset filename to sync it to Creative Cloud. For more information, see Error: "Unable to sync assets."
(Applicable only to files) Uploading a file again creates a version of it and replaces the existing file with a new one. Creative Cloud keeps a copy of every change you make to a file.
To replace a file in Your Work, do the following:
For information on versioning, see Versioning FAQs.
Deleting a file, library element, or mobile creation is a two-step process. You first delete it temporarily and then permanently from the Deleted folder for its category from Your Work.
You can delete files on your desktop, from within Your Work, and from a Creative Cloud-enabled mobile app. You can even use OS commands to delete assets from the Creative Cloud Files directory on your desktop.
All asset deletions are synced with your Creative Cloud account. Deleted assets continue to occupy online storage. Permanently deleting the assets frees up your storage quota.
By default, new documents in Adobe XD are saved as cloud documents in your Creative Cloud space. You can easily access the cloud documents across devices.
To view your cloud documents, in Your Work, select Files > Cloud Documents. From the Cloud Documents tab, you can:
- View metadata of your cloud documents.
- Delete the XD cloud documents you own; you can permanently delete or restore your deleted cloud documents.
- Search for XD cloud documents you own.
For more information, see Manage and work with cloud documents.

Creative Cloud syncs up to 1GB of overflow from any device. After that, the Creative Cloud desktop app stops syncing new assets and notifies you that you are over quota. A red exclamation point marks any assets that are unable to upload. You can still move, rename, or delete assets. To continue to sync assets, permanently delete other assets to free up space.
A small portion of storage is used for administrative purposes. Therefore, the actual storage space is slightly less than allocated. It varies from 100 KB to 500 KB based on the number of user assets.
