LRC Warning Message

Whenever I start LR Classic (currently V11 but same behavior with V10), I get the following warning (see attached screenshot). I click OK and everything seems to work.

 

Any idea why this occurs and can I get rid of it?

The suggestions are wrong. This is a different problem. What happened is that the destination folder of images synced down from the cloud was reset to your root user folder. Lightroom does not, and should not, have permissions to write to this folder. Go to Preferences - Lightroom Sync and choose another destination folder location.

And, assuming Catalina or beyond, Security & Privacy, Privacy, Files and Folders, LrC needs rights to various volumes

Yep - that too. It is strange since once I click 'OK' everything seems to work.

Johan, just for my info, how did you deduce that? Images synced down from the cloud?

This is sounding a little more plausible. My catalog, helper files and photos were moved to a clean external hard drive from a Time Machine backup (had the same issue when accessing everything on the Time Machine backup). The chosen sync destination and the associated permission is below. What alternative destination would make sense? 

Thanks in advance,

Andy

The screen capture shows the default folder that your Catalog file would be stored with ancilary data and in my opinion not a good choice.

Better to be a specific folder that only contai8ns the actual synced files. I have mine in a specified folder within the folder structure of the image files that is displayed in my Library module. See the screen captures.Screenshot 2021-10-28 at 8.49.59 PM.pngScreenshot 2021-10-28 at 8.51.03 PM.png

Actually, unticking the box 'Specify location for Lightroom's synced images' seems to do the trick.

So did it revert to the default location? Your synced images from Lightroom mobile apps have to go to a specific folder which should display there. If nothing is selected sync will not function properly.

Yes, that will also do the trick, but you may not like the way it does that. What happens in that case is that Lightroom will once again use the inflexible 'Mobile Downloads.lrdata' package to store the images, located inside your catalog folder. Most people prefer not to use that, but use their own normal folder hierarchy.

Should this folder ideally be created on an external or local drive, or does it matter? I don't have a tremendous amount of local storage space.

Right now it seems to be working fine and I often subscribe to the 'if it ain't broken don't fix it' philosophy.

Ideally you select a top folder in your normal folder hierarchy, so there is no difference between images you added to Lightroom from a camera and images that were added to Lightroom from the cloud because they were shot with the camera app in Lightroom Mobile on your mobile phone.
