I want to connect Lightroom with my personal MS Onedrive. Based on what I read it looks like I need to use Lightroom Classic to do this, as Lightroom ONLY uses the Adobe cloud for storage. Have I got this right?
I answered 'No' in your other post, but here is what I understand-
Lightroom: (Cloud version) cannot use Onedrive. It stops there!
Lightroom-Classic: First- LrC can access files in a Onedrive folder -BUT only if there is a 'Local' copy of the files.
If you use [Files on Demand]- Lightroom-Classic will not have access to the files and show an error "File not found".
Second- (from other reports I have read) Lr-Classic will get very 'confused' trying to update metadata to files and onedrive, with the strong possibility that the Catalog is easily corrupted.
I do not know if using Smart Previews is even an answer, as I have not tried using Onedrive for Lr images.
So, in the end, then answer is basically "No", once again.
Confirming my experience similar to WobertC above regarding Lightroom CC.
However, I'm using Dropbox with LRC and its working well and I dont need a local copy of the files until I need to edit.
