Hi,

I've been using mobile LR plan for some time now and i've recently brought the photography plan so i'm pretty new to this, I wanted to save all of my photos from lightroom classic onto my external harddrive but everytime I go to sync my photos from creative cloud that I was using with LR mobile it ends up filling up my internal drive so theres no space on there.

Its now stopping me from syncing or editing any photos because the lack of space so now i'm having to revert to using LR mobile again which is really annoying.

Does anyone have a solution to this?

Under Preferences in Lightroom Classic, click on the "Lightroom Sync" tab. Then you can set whatever drive and folder you want for synced images.

Thank you, I think thats actually sorted it. Although now I've changed the location of where they're sync'd to will it update the photos that have already sync'd or will I need to do something else for that to happen?

Did you look to see if it moved the photos already synced?

I use that option and I think it affects only future downloads; you have to move any existing photos yourself.

My experience was the opposite. There was a dialog box that asked if you wanted to move existing downloads to the new location.

We’ll go with your answer then. Either I forgot that dialog box appeared, or maybe it didn’t do that in the version of Lightroom Classic when I changed it (it was a long time ago).
