Hello,

I've just installed this app and found a problem during creating a new album and adding photos. I have my photos stored on my local drive (D:) in many folders. I couldn't find any option how to import whole folders into Lightroom (the way I want it is to have folder name = album name). So I tried to create new album manually, but when I add photos it told me I don't have enough space on hard drive. After some research I found out that it is creating duplicate photos in folder c:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Adobe\Lightroom\Data. I'm not sure if I have some bad settings or where is the problem so I wanted to ask here if someone had a similar problem? I don't want Lightroom to make duplicate photos, I just want to view what I have already on my hard drive and edit it from there.

 

Thanks you

T.
