I am exploring LR ( I already use LR Classic).  I clicked on an Album and set it to store on local drive.  Now I cannot find the Folder /Album on my HDD.  I have done a complete search but cannot find the Album.  In LR Classic, if i right click the Folder I can see its location in Windows, but this doesn't work with LR.  The Album only has one image in it, so it is no big deal, but where is it?

Also, can I set my own destination for the Store Locally option?

Albums and folders are just organisational tools. Like collections and collection sets in Classic there is nothing created on your hard drive. The originals are stored in the cloud rather than on your computer. That means photos can be available on all computers, laptops, phones and tablets.

99jon, confusing that.  I thought the images were on the cloud anyway and storing them locally would physically put them on the device to enable you to work on them offline.
