Lightroom Classic Desktop Not Synching to Cloud / Mobile Devices - Perpetually Stuck 1100 Images

I have read numerous threads on this topic and still have not found a solution.  My desktop version is perpetually stuck at 1100 images.  I have had Adobe technicians remote in numerous times. I have tried rebuilding the sync data.  All to no avail.

 

LR Desktop Synced Images: 98,258

LR Mobile All Images : 99,358

Local activity = 1,100 images in perpetual sync.

 

I have sent diagnostics report to Adobe and I keep getting the "engineers" are working on the solution.

 

My case number is over a month old.  

 

There are no synch errors when you look at the sync activity on desktop.

 

I have asked numerous times to provide feedback from the diagnostics report for which images causing the sync error.  No response.

 

The chat people keep telling me to be patient.....waiting over a month for a solution that has paralyzed my workflow is beyone infuriating.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get this resolved?  Adobe has done a fantastic job of preventing you from being able to talk to a live person in the United States who can actually give you answers not from the script.  Makes me regret ever switching to subscription service from Lightroom 6.  Editing on multiple devices is useless if it doesn't work.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have my sympathy I have the same problem.

 

I have found that if i pause syncing, then shut down LR and  restart sometimes the Syncing icons reappear and i can restart syncing and LR syncs to the mobile and Portfolio.

Unfortunately this did not solve my problem.

Live chats go nowhere.

 

Was on hold for 30 minutes yesterday when I called.  Person who barely spoke English came back on...told me Senior Technician will call me back in 30 minutes.  I confirmed my time zone and phone number......drumroll.......never called back.

 

 

This is beyond infuriating.  Hey...but as long as they have record profits....why should they care...

Hi, thanks for your patience, I'll be happy to help you, please give me a moment to read through the subscription details.

Eshan....can you provide me an update on status with engineers......another week has gone by....and the functionality of the product is not working.

I have not received any communication from Adobe.

Can you advise me on how do I go about resolving this ongoing saga.

Eshan

I’ll be happy to assist you with an update on your ongoing case.
Please allow me few minutes while I check for the same.

David, thank you for being patient. As i can see you have contacted multiple times and also your case is being actively worked upon. We request you to please be patient for the update. Your assigned agent who is handling your case would get back to you shortly.

Eshan....how would you define patient? Do you feel that over 1 month is not patient? It is not unreasonable for a paying customer to either to have a) a solution in this timeframe b) an estimated timeline. My workflow is completely paralyzed.

David, before an Adobe support staff I am an user of Adobe apps just like you. I totally understand what you must be going through when your productivity apps do not work when you want them to work. But as I can see you are a loyal customer of Adobe. We request you to have faith in us and trust me I would mention in the notes so that the agent would get back to to at the earliest. Shall we do it together?

Read Entire Message

We shall. What I expect is for Adobe to a) solve the issue in a reasonable amount of time b) Adobe to recognize the loss of productivity from this and to credit my account appropriately.

Eshan

We totally acknowledge to both of your requests. We could consider your request b).

Thank you. I look forward to Adobe's solution. Have a good day.

Eshan

Thank you Stay safe!

Adobe Case ADB-18958147-Q7C9

Please do not ask for me to be patient any longer. I need answers.

Thank you for patiently waiting. I see this case has been escalated to our senior technicians and currently they are reviewing it. You should be getting an update regarding this issue shortly. However, I have once again made a note on this so that they are notified. We request your patience on this as we are shorthanded right now due to global pandemic. Hope you understand.

I do not understand. You have not adjusted the price because of global pandemic. You charge me month after month for a product that does not work. You are taking my money...and not providing me with answers. Please connect me to somebody that will provide me with confirmation I will receive a refund for the time that I have lost for this horrible customer service.

Give me a moment while I find a solution for you. Thanks for your patience.

Support has provided me with no answers. I have been paying for a product that does not work. I would like a refund for the time the product has not worked. Which is two months now.

I have uploaded diagnostics reports. They have remoted into my computer. I can't sync desktop with any of my mobile devices.

Satyanarayan

Just a moment... it's taking longer than I expected. I appreciate your patience.

I can see that case is already escalated to team who is working on this soon they will reply over email once it will be done.

I was transferred to you because Deepak said that you would facilitate the refund the time the product has not been working. Which is now 2 months.

That is not what I'm asking. I know that it has been escalated. What I am asking for is a refund for the time that Adobe has been charging me for a product that does not work. Is this clear?

This has been open since May.

I have been beyond patient.
