Long story short: The folder that held all of my LR images and catalogs is gone.
Current dilema: I had approx. 30 collections/folders synced with LR Mobile, and can currently see them on adobe.lightroom.com, as well as on my iPad LR Mobile app. I do not want to open the LR desktop app for fear of losing the "link" to the images.
Is there any other way to recover these images (or entire folders) in lieu of clicking on each shared collection link (which opens all images in that particular collection in a browser window) and downloading each of the images one at a time? There are ~300+ images that I (read: my irritated wife) would like to save. Or is this method my penance?
Did I get it right that you no longer have access to your original photos and you would like to have the once stored at the server side downloaded? - Guido
That was exactly the scenario, but I went ahead and downloaded each photo from the LR mobile shared links. I'm also typing "I will not try to create a second partition on my External Hard Drive ever again" 1000 times.
