    Lightroom Mobile syncing problem - Desktop and laptop

    note4shawn

      I am trying to use Lightroom Mobile to sync files between my desktop and my laptop. At first I was having sync errors when I tried to sync photos in a collection. I then did the following:

       

      1. Lightroom desktop preferences>Lightroom Mobile>”Delete All Data”
      2. Stop Lightroom desktop and delete the sync.lrdata folder

       

      I was finally able to sync the photos on my desktop.  When I log into Lightroom Mobile on my laptop it gives me the message about using one catalog at a time. Asking if I want to delete and use the current catalog or not to delete. No matter what I choose, once it says synced none of the collections or photos show up in my collections on my laptop. BUT if I choose to delete the catalog then my connection on my desktop gets severed and I no longer can sync on my desktop. I then have to go through the entire process listed above in order to sync again.

       

      Maybe I do not understand exactly how this is supposed to work. I assume that once one computer syncs a collection successfully then once another computer/mobile device syncs with the same account credentials then the collection would show up in the new devices collection list? Is this correct? Or am I missing something here?  Do I have to somehow share the photos or something?

       

      Thanks,
