If you are doing this procedure, you should make sure that the type of import is 'Add' not 'Copy'.

You're saying that "delete from disk" does not actually do that?

 

In that case it has to be about permissions.

 

Can you delete from the operating system? (If you try, be sure it's the correct file...)

Yes, I can delete directly. Whay I am doing right now is:

 

1.- File menu, select "Import photos and videos...".

2.- Select the year 2010 (for example) and "New Photos"

3.- That should show only the files that are not in my catalogue.

4.- Select import

5.- Once imported I select all from the "previous import" and Delete from Disk.
6.- I empty the trash.

 

For soem reason LRC seems to duplicate the images that I then delete yet the original images are still there and untouched.
