Hello all,

 

My originals folder in adobe is taking up a ton of space, well over 20GB or data. How can i move/relocate these files? Also how do i know if its synced to the cloud?

Hi there,

 

Sorry that the Appdata folder in Lightroom is using a large portion of storage space on your hard drive.

 

Which exact version of Lightroom are you using and what is your computer's OS?

 

The Appdata folder stores the temporary cache, previews of images from Lightroom and can be cleared to free up storage on computer.

 

Please checkout this dicussion for more details and steps to resolve this issue: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/community/threads/previews-folder-filling-my-c-drive.41960/

 

Let us know the outcome.

 

Thanks,

Akash

I am using the creative cloud (cc) version of lightroom on windows 10 latest update. 

 

The link you put is about a preview folder which i dont have a problem with. Its my originals folder even though i have the store all originals option unchecked. And im confused about what that option even does. As it is i store all my raw files in a separate large disk drive (4tb) and then import them as needed into lightroom. Why would lightroom also seemingly want to store the files somewhere else?
