Hi all!

 

So the other day i was clearing space on my mac when i impusivly deleted the Mobile downloads file on my Mac. This has now led to Light room cc to say on nearly every photo "this file cannot be found ". Now because I import all of my images from my mobile device, they are still available in the Adobe cloud and I can edit them on Adobe Lightroom on my phone iPad and Mac, but on Adobe classic it's still saying no file is found, because they are obviously no longer on the hard drive, but are still on the cloud on adobe cc. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe cc which has led to no improvement. Is there a way I can re-download all of the photos from my Adobe cloud to fix the problem of the files not being found, because i would have thought so? I'm normally a techy guy who can work this out, but i need someone to advise me on this!

You have deleted your photos. The 'Mobile Downloads.lrdata' package is where photos are stored that are downloaded from the cloud, i.e. photos made on your iPhone. Do you have a Time Machine backup?
