Every since I upgarded to 1Tb storage from 20gb the cloud doesn't allow be to go past 20gb when uploading to the cloud even though my account says I now have 1TB I have installed, uninstalled, clear cache nothing works. The Specialist on the chat can't help I called customer service they just tried to repeat whatever steps they have me on chat they don't work they escalated my problem and I still have yet to get a call from Adobe.
Please any suggestions please I tried to tell them it's a Adobe Tech issue not my mobile or desktop issue is something behind the scenes my account is not recognized and I have more space
Here are some things to do before your call with Adobe.
Thank you I did all off that it shows the 1Tb storage upgrade across all devices everything is showing correct I only have one account all across all devices
I've been using that application for over a year and this syncing issue started after I upgraded to 1Tb about a month ago so have
It's just not allowing any New photos to upload into cloud its seems it not allowing uploads that are going pass 20gb the old storage amount even thought it clearly says 1tb Now
It does sound like there is a problem with your account, and you will need someone from Adobe to fix that. You could try the chat help again and hope to get someone more helpful.
Having same problem. Wasted many hours with a half-dozen Adobe "first level" support folks. The last call was quite abrasive as I had great difficultly explaining to the rep that the problem is on their end! They will waste your time checking your local installation, checking you are logged out and logged in properly. Waste.
The first few reps explained to give it 24+ hours after upgrading storage for the new caps to be reflected everywhere (e.g. assets.adobe.com increased limit to propagate to lightroom.adobe.com). 48+ hours later still showing 100GB on lightroom.adobe and 1TB on assets.adobe.
My suspicion is that this is not a "bug". I think this is a result of conflicting licensing plans which engineers are stuck implementing, resulting in a broken solution. There are 2 ways to upgrade storage. Per Adobe documentation:
If you need more storage, you can purchase extra storage plans through your Adobe ID account (Plans > Manage Plan > Change Plan). For detailed instructions, see Upgrade your Creative Cloud storage.
Alternatively, click Upgrade Storage on the lower-left corner of Your Work section of Creative Cloud website.
First is through the "Creative Cloud All Apps" plan management and the second is through "Creative Cloud File Storage" plan management.
Problem is, the cost for additional storage can differ between the "Change Plan" and "Upgrade Storage" options. By a significant amount in fact for educators, since adding 1TB via "Change Plan" loses all discounts resulting in a ~$40 increase) p/month, whereas adding via "Upgrade Storage" is a reasonable $9.99 p/month. Rather than fix the disparity, it remains contradictory and various support reps will have differing interpretations as I experienced with a rep yesterday telling me I need to cancel my account and start with the 1TB plan.
If this is in fact by design, Adobe should be more transparent and make this clear so consumers can make informed decisions. For me, if I cannot economically share my 1TB with Lightroom CC, I won't use or instruct students on Lightroom CC; there are competing cloud based photo solutions.
It seems escalation to an engineer (or whatever tier is above front-line) was able to resolve the matter. Finally! Was hoping this would be a viable solution, so back to testing overall.
How did you get in touch with someone higher up? I have this exact issue 2 years later from your post and I got sent from Lightroom Customer Service to Tech Customer Service to Billing Customer Service and now they are sending me back to tech?? I asked if there was someone higher up I could talk to and they refused and are saying it's my fault when I know it isn't and I don't want to get sent allllll the way back to the same people. Please help!!
Hi, i stumbled over this right now, dunno if you could solve your issue but what helped me was deleting just a few old images, once the cloud started updating, my storage option worked aswell.
Thanks! This worked for me!
Did anyone actually find a real solution to this problem without a lengthy call with Adobe support?
In a web browser, sign into your account at https://lightroom.adobe.com/
In the left panel, do you see a group of photos identified as sync issues? If you are able to resolve these (figure out which device needs to finish syncing the photos, or just delete the photos if they can be uploaded again), does this unblock sync for you?
Thank you! Deleting sync issues solved the problem! Btw Ihad the same problem like the ones above. So thx you made my day!
Sadly this is not working for me.
I have deleted all my sync issues and all images which cannot be synced because it says out of space.
Now i have 13.7 GB left from 100 GB but i should have 1 TB.
Do you have an idea how i can solve this. It is very frustrating that i cannot work normally and every sync process is a big problem.
Hello FWeber, sorry for the slow response here. This doesn't sound right. Even if you purchased 1 TB of additional Creative Cloud storage and not the 1 TB Lightroom plan, I would still expect Lightroom should be able to utilise that Creative Cloud storage. Please contact Adobe Support directly, asking them why LR can't use the CC supplemental storage for your account. Contact options here: https://helpx.adobe.com/contact/what-contact-options.html
I did this and have been sent to 3 different departments and am now getting circled back again....
Signing out and back in on Lightroom Classic did solve the issue for me.
