I had Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic installed in my Mac until I decided to uninstall LR CC and work only with LR Classic, syncing to Creative Cloud.

I have reviewed the files left after I uninstalled LR CC and I can see that there is a "Lightroom Library.lrlibrary" folder that occupies a large amount of space in my HD (over 40Gb). I want to delete this folder (since I understand that it was created by LR CC and not by LR Classic) but I do not want to affect the files of my installed Lightroom Classic app.

Can I safely delete the "Lightroom Library.lrlibrary" folder without affecting Lightroom Classic?

 

Thanks for your help.

Yes. If you are no longer using Lightroom (desktop, formerly called Lightroom CC), then you can trash the 'Lightroom Library.lrlibrary' file. Lightroom Classic is not using it in any way.

Thank you very much Johan. I imagined so, but I had doubts.

Best,
