Hello there, I am using the creative cloud monthly subscription and I'm wondering are there any benefits to using both CC and Classic together. I only use LR classic at the moment, is it easy to sync, does it have a major impact on storage requirements etc?
Thanking you in advance,

I don't believe there is any real benefit to running them on the same computer.

But if you use a secondary computer, then there can be benefits as you'd install Cloudy Lightroom on your other computer. You can import files into it, and they'll automatically appear in your main Classic catalogue. It's like having Lightroom Mobile on your other laptop.

I have Lightroom desktop installed on my computer too, for only one reason. Profiles and presets do not sync from Lightroom Classic, so if I create a new preset that I would like to have on my mobile devices too, or if I create a custom profile, I use Lightroom desktop to sync it to the cloud.
