Photoshop Elements 2018 and OneDrive

Has anyone tried to connect directly to their onedrive account in the cloud as opposed to the sync'd one held locally? I am trying to do this as I no longer have space to hold a copy locally but trying to populate a catalog takes forever as one would expect - I have 500GB of pics. Anyone have any suggestions?

That does not work. The files indexed in your catalog can't be in the Cloud (Onedrive, Dropbox or similar). They must be on an internal or external conventional drive.

Thanks very much Michael. Its exactly as I thought. The problem I have is I do download (sync) my onedrive files to my external hard disk. But whenever I disconnect and reconnect the hard disk the onedrive sync starts from scratch so was trying to find a way of bypassing the local storage completely. Thanks for your very quick response.

I just looked today and found the following. Should I delete the cloud thing? I have never even attempted to use the cloud for anything.

The OneDrive folder is a special system folder which is installed to allow sharing the files you choose to store there with other computer or devices via your Microsoft account. In that case, Windows takes care to get the files in that folder with the servers on the Microsoft Cloud automatically. It's the same for other common syncing services by Google, Dropbox, Amazon etc.

If you don't choose to store files in that folder, there is nothing in "the Cloud". You can move files in or out of that folder yourself.

 

Your screenshot shows that an organizer service called 'watched folder' is set up to scan the system folder to warn you if some new files are found in that folder for whatever reason. You can choose to untick the special folder for this service. Or you can leave it to be warned if some files do appear there. You can delete files or subfolders from the system folders or move them to another folder outside of the system folder.

 

The ability to share documents or photos with other devices or other users is invaluable for many users. That's useful not only for sharing, but for backing up. Photographers commonly start by 'syncing' the photos of their smartphones with one of the 'Cloud syncing' solutions. The result is that if you have that system syncing folder in your computer, the photos of the Cloud will be available in that folder. As a result, you can choose in your preferences to import those files in your catalog, or to be asked if you want.
