    When I export RAW files to edit later and save on my desktop an XMP file is generated too. I have no idea why, how to correct this.


      After from changing from a PC to a MAC the above happened.  Did my PC just store the XMP file somewhere else and is it essential to the RAW file?

      Ideally I would just like to plug in my camera, import the photos to Lightroom, export them to a USB as RAW files, then go back and edit them at a later date and export as high res JPEG.


      I'm hoping to keep my new MAC super clean and storing everything externally.

      So sorry if this is a bad question!



      Many thanks in advance for all your help
