Can I sync Lightroom edited album to LR classic and then delete the edits from LR mobile?

If I sync my albums from LR (ipad)  over to classic (mac) and then try to delete the edits from LR on ipad I get a warning that all my images will be deleted across all devices. 

 

Is there not a way that I can transfer my edited albums from ipad pro over to classic and then remove from my ipad? It takes up a ton of storage with random client albums clogging up from the past years. 

 

I would love to archive them but keep active edits in case I need to revisit.

When you are sure that all 'Cloud' photos have downloaded into the Lightroom-Classic catalog (and a local hard-drive as set in Preferences)- SYNC SETUP IN CLASSIC 

It requires removing the original from the cloud, and then syncing the same image again from Lightroom Classic so it becomes a smart preview in the cloud by this method-

 

1: Remove the image(s) from the "All Synced Photographs" collection in Lightroom-Classic.

2: Wait till they have disappeared from the cloud. *

3: Add them again to the "All Synced Photographs" collection in Lightroom-Classic, or to a synced collection (if you want them in a particular album on your iPad).

4: The image(s) will now sync to the cloud again, but this time as smart previews.

 

* If you go to https://lightroom.adobe.com you can view "Deleted" files that remain in the Cloud for 60days.

Or to force an immediate Delete- Select the files shown in "Deleted" list and Bin them.
