Hi -

My syncing from my desktop to Lr CC on the web says it is pause, I get the message below.  I am, first, unsure if I should actually "Delete All Data", and what does that actually mean?  My process is to upload my photos into the online version of my Lr CC and let them sync into my desktop version.  If I am to actually "Delete All Data"  am I going to lose all of my work that I did on the desktop?  Will I lose all of my photos that were uploaded into the web version?

Secondly, what does it mean that I have a duplicate catalog, and is there any way to just delete the duplicate catalog and move on so that things can sync up again.  I would hate to delete all data and lose the original photos I have uploaded into the web version and that have synced into my desktop.  I don't want to lose all of my work, catalogs, or metadata.

Thank you for any help and insight you might have.  I have already tried restarting and updating to the Creative Cloud latest version of Lr on my desktop.
