Catalog Decided to Sync ALL images to Cloud -- Can't reset and won't sync what I actually want.

Hi there,

Hoping you all can help me with a very irritating issue with my catalog sync settings. I currently have ONE collection marked to sync with 1500 images in it, that's all. But, everytime I run the sync it is sync-ing every single photo in my catalog (over 70,000) and maxes out my RAM making my computer unusable. It obviously stops when I turn off sync entirely, but I would really like to be able to access the few things I have assigned to sync when I need them. Currently it's just totally unusable. 

 

Thanks!

Sounds like you are using Lightroom (with the Lr icon) and not Lightroom Classic (with the LrC icon). So please clarify ... what is the exact name of the software are you using?

I'm using Lightroom Classic. But use Lr on my iPad and phone where I'd like to be able to see the intentionally synced images rather than the whole catalog.

Lightroom Classic, on its own, does not sync all your collections (and all your photos) to the cloud. Why do you think LrC is doing this?

 

Show us (a portion of) the Collection Panel in LrC so we can see that it has synced all collections. Show us a screen capture of something that indicates all of your photos are synched with the cloud. (Use the "Insert Photos" icon to include screen captures in your reply; do not attach files).

That's what I'd love to know!! I know that is not how it is supposed to work, so I don't know what setting is triggering it to do so. 

 

Here are photos to hopefully help diagnose the issue, explanation of the images are in the image caption:
