I apologize--it was pointed out to me that you were talking about the FILES, not the software. Now that I re-read the email, I see that too. If you get too many versions beyond the new CC (what ever they will be called), the files PROBABLY won't be able to be saved back (unless Adobe builds in a permanent CS6 save-down). If you get cancel with current version and need to save back to CS6, you can either re-subscribe for a month--or get a gmail address, a new Adobe ID using that address, and then use CC for 30 days.
