When I try to open an existing catalog in Lightroom, it wants to upgrade it to the latest version, which is fine. The problem is that the upgraded catalog location is: C:\users\myusername\OneDrive\therestofmyfilename. It will not allow me to change the location.

 

How do I stop it from going to OneDrive? I do not have syncing turned on

 

Thanks for anyone's help!

Generally by default Adobe installs Lightroom in  your Pictures directory. Can you confirm that you have a  Lightroom folder in  your Pictures directory on your C drive? If  you've got Lightroom files in OneDrive you would have added that location perhaps as a backup or  you would have moved them there. If you have Lightroom in  your Pictures folder when you open  Lightroom select Open>Other Catalog from the File menu in Lightroom and  navigate to the Pictures/Lightroom directory and select the current version (v10 if you've updated).

Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Paste that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.

You can turn off One Drive any time you want.

 

Or, if the upgraded catalog is in the wrong folder ... shut down Lightroom Classic, and then move the catalog to wherever you want it to be.
