    how do I identify virtual copies (in my folders) that have already been deleted from a collection

      Hello!

       

      I keep looking for an answer to this all over the web and in 3 books, but can find no answer....

       

      How do I identify virtual copies (in my folders) that have already been deleted from a collection?

       

      Here is the workflow, and where I am getting stuck.

       

      1.  I selected a photo and put it into a collection.

      2.  I made a whole bunch of virtual copies of the photos in the collection as I tried out different edits.

      3.  After and during a bunch of edits, I deleted many of the virtual copies from my collection because I decided against the edits after doing some comparisons.

      4.  When I went in to folders to select my next photo to work on and thus to add to the collection, I discovered that every one of my virtual copies was in the originating folder, even tho I had deleted them from my collection.

      5.  I really don't want those deleted virtual copies to be in my originating folder.  They were trial-and-error virtual copies and I really wanted them to just be discarded.

      6.  How do identify these deleted-from-the-collection virtual copies in my folder?  The file names all look the same, and besides, I want to be absolutely certain that I have selected the right ones.  Some of the edits were very minor and would be hard to see without painstakingly going through them one-by-one.

       

      Thank you so much!!
