It's now safe to update Adobe Creative Cloud apps

14 February 2016, 06:30

Adobe today (14th February 2016) released version of the Creative Cloud Desktop app for Mac. This version allegedly fixes the bug that wiped files from users’ hard disk.

DISCLAIMER: Here at Mac Kung Fu we haven’t installed the update to test it, and couldn’t test it in all usage situations whatever the case.

The release notes state:

Version released on 2/14/2016

Fixed an issue in the Creative Cloud for desktop app for Mac where in some scenarios the application may incorrectly remove files with user writeable permissions from the system root directory.

Remember to check when updating that you’re getting version

As a rule of thumb:

  • released on 2/11/2016 = very bad
  • released on 2/14/2016 = good (probably).
