Why do I have to put mu documents in a cloud?? I only want to have them on my home computer. I am retired and don't need to travel and take all this stuff with me.
nothing needs to be put 'in a cloud'. cloud storage is an 'extra' that you don't have to use. i don't.
to use a creative cloud subscription, your computer needs to connect to the internet once every 30 to 91 days (or less if you use your cc programs less often) so adobe can confirm your subscription is current (ie, paid). you don't need to store anything with adobe.
in particular, your cc programs are installed on your computer(s), not 'in a cloud'. the files you create using adobe's software remain on your computer and need NOT be uploaded to the cloud, ever.
