Hi All,

so, THAT message, stating my hard drive does not have enough space for additional images to import into Lightroom, came up.

I was under the impression everything backed up to the cloud, and I manually back up to an external hard drive..

Now, when I try to find where everything is stored, it seems to be an app icon, that is my Lightroom library..

I cannot seem to find anything to delete from my hard drive.. Unless I delete this entire icon maybe??

I'm sure I'm simply missing something very simple, would anyone be able to guide me in the right direction please?

Cheers, Tanja

When you import into Lightroom CC, it first makes copies of all the images in a special location and then will start uploading those images to the cloud. Only after the images are uploaded to the cloud will it consider deleting the images from the local hard drive. It will only do that if it considers them not in current use and that might take a little while.
