    Discard 1:1 Previews doesn't seem to work

    waforum123 Level 1

      I have too much disk space (8 GB) dedicated to previews ("...Previews.lrdata" folder). Even after I have Lightroom "Discard all 1:1 previews", The bulk of those files (maybe even all of them) remain. This seems to be a bug in LR. Outside of just deleting the folder myself (hesitant to do that),

      how do I get rid of the 8GB of previews?

       

      I also noticed that the folder seems read only and am wondering if that is part of the problem. I am running LR 5.6 on a Win7 x64 system.

       

      BTW a good feature suggestion would be to be able to set a limit on the amount of disk space allowed for previews.
