using LR 5.7 - choose "delete from disk" - files no longer in LR, they are in trash and are still in original folder. empty trash, restart LR and same scenario.
been deleting files as above for years, never checked to see if files still on mac.
how is this possible? how can i fix?
Perhaps the folder where the actual files exist does not have WRITE permission.
first - an apology from me. the problem was not with LR. when i went to a folder in finder and looked at the problem files i discovered that i had duplicates and triplicates of many images. deleting these corrected (i hope) the problem.
