Hi everyone,

 

First al sorry sorry if this issue was posted before, I couldn´t find the answer after try hard.

 

Issue is about LR classic - online working with onedrive.

 

I upgrated from old LR to LR classic - online 2 months ago, and from there I realize that when I delete photos in LR (photo - delete rejected photos - delete from disk), photos are not anymore in LR, but they remain in the harddisk and they are not deleted from the folder, the onedrive - folder is in a D: internal disk in my laptop.

 

I tried to restart onedrive and the computer, and onedrive sync again without delete any pictures.

 

This never happen before when I used the old LR, problem now is that I am running out of space, pluse all the pictures that I deleted in LR are inside the folders and I would like not to need to go one by one to delete again.

 

Hope I explain myself, English is not my mothertongue.

 

Thanks in advance and best regards.

This is the second post I've seen since last night about One Drive, and the previous one was talking about how it's not really compatible with Lightroom-this is anecdotal, I've not used One Drive. People have had better success with Dropbox. If you're concerned about online backup, services like Backblaze can do either all connected drives mirrored, or a manual upload service. 

 

The only solution I can offer is before you delete, filter by rejects, then move them to a sub folder (right click on

Hi Sean, 

 

Thanks for your advice, good idea the subfolder to insolate the photos to delete them.

 

I think I need to import again all the photos rejected, so I can do it again one by one, it will take some time but at least I have the catalogue and the folders with the same photos.

 

Thanks again !.

Here's an alternative for now that might work. Do the opposite for folders where you've deleted rejects. In Lightroom move the files into a subfolder. Then in One Drive the files that are in the main folder are the rejects.
