Do you frequently use Adobe Creative Cloud storage to share files with colleagues, clients, printers … ? If you do, you are bound to run into problems in the short term. In late July 2023, Adobe announced that from 1 October 2024, all synchronised resources shared through Creative Cloud will no longer be supported. For personal accounts not associated with a corporate membership, these changes will be implemented on 1 February 2024. In this blog, we answer the most frequently asked questions regarding this decision.
The timing of this change is not the same for everyone. New users will no longer have access from 1 October 2023. For personal accounts without corporate membership, this moment is 1 February 2024. Finally, business teams will no longer be able to use this feature from 1 October 2024. This means that, for example, you can no longer share files via Creative Cloud files with employees hired after 1 October 2023.
