How can I delete the files in my cloud storage?

First, I am using Lightroom CC. I have historically only performed local backups of images. I only want the cloud storage for when I am traveling. I inadvertently selected the sync option for my entire library at some point, and the system tell me that the storage is 97% full. However, when I go into the creative cloud app to look for files, there are none. What do I do?

Nevermind. I figured it out myself.

Hi SparksPhotography,

Are you using Lightroom CC or Lightroom CC Classic? Here is some info about the difference. Lightroom CC Common questions

Which version you're using will make a difference in terms of how I'd approach your questions.

  • Lightroom CC primarily uses cloud storage in which case you may want to do pursue getting more cloud storage.
  • If you're using Lightroom CC Classic and have uploaded photos online that you want to remove to free up your cloud storage space, the content will appear here Photo Editor | Online Photoshop Lightroom when you sign in with your Adobe ID
    • Images stored there also count towards your Creative Cloud storage used in addition to Creative Cloud Files.
    • If you click the Lightroom logo in the top left and go to Account Info you can delete your entire online library or alternatively just remove individual albums.

Hope that helps,

- Dave

Hello Dave,

Thanks for replying, but no that does not answer my question, but it is the only answer that seems to be given. As stated, I use Lightroom CC, not Lightroom CC Classic. I only want to know how to empty my cloud storage. I don't want to upgrade as I only plan to use the cloud storage for images that I have edited while traveling. The issue is, there is nothing showing in my online library. but I constantly get the notification that my storage is 97% full. I just want to clear the message, and have the 20GB free.

Thanks!

How did you do it?  I did this same thing.  Tried to use Lightroom CC, hated it over Lightroom Classic, but I also inadvertantly hit the Sync button and now it's all full.  I just want to clear out the Cloud Storage.  Thank you.
