Hi,

I use LR 4.1 (cloud) and when I delete a photo in LR it's still on my harddisk.

The pop-up that appears when i hit the delete button has only two options:

remove from 

1 your Lightroom photo's

2 my albums and shared items

 

I would like to deleted te photo from my harddisk as well!

Any idea how I can do this?

Henk

Where on your hard disk is that photo? Is it a local copy saved by Lightroom? In that case Lightroom should automatically delete it, but that may take some time. Is it the original photo that you imported in Lightroom? In that case Lightroom does not manage this local copy so you have to delete it yourself.

Ik importeer alle foto's vanaf de harddisk van mijn Mac.

Vroeger bij mijn Windows pc met Lightroom gewoon op de computer (dus niet via cloud) kon ik gewoon de foto's gelijktijdig van de harddisk wissen

Yes, but you chose to use Lightroom, the cloud based version, and that works differently. If you don't like that, stick to Lightroom Classic. That is the Lightroom you know from the past, and no, it is not obsolete.
