Disable Autodesk A360 without uninstalling it

You can stop A360 Desktop from syncing to the cloud without uninstalling A360 Desktop from your system. Here are the instructions for both Windows and Mac:

Windows:

Pause A360 Desktop Sync:

In the system tray, right click on the A360 Desktop icon and click on “Pause sync”. This will stop any files from syncing between your computer and the A360 Drive web site. Note that this is a temporary solution.

 

Stop A360 Desktop from starting when you sign into your computer:

In the system tray, right click on the A360 Desktop icon and click on “Preferences…”. Under “Application” uncheck “Start A360 Desktop when I log on to Windows”. This will disable the A360 Drive Desktop component from starting up when you start your computer. Restart is required for this change.

 

Mac OS:

On the top banner bar you will see the A360 Desktop icon. Right click on it and select “Pause sync”.

Stop A360 Desktop from starting when you sign into your Mac:

From the top banner bar right click on the A360 Sync icon and select “Preferences…”. Uncheck “Start Autodesk 360 on system startup”.

Note: The only way to truly disable A360 Drive is to uninstall it.
