    Picture count increasing while Syncronizing

    Murchi

      Hi,

      I got two interesting effects in my Lightroom:

       

      a) recently I detected that a number of folders are showing a missing sub folder called: downloaded-smart-previews.

      I ended up deleting all of them but where is it coming from?

       

      b) today I realized that Synchronisation was turned off. I switched it back on and what is happening since the syncronization is processing is that the picture count keeps on increasing with each picture that it uploads! This results in a significant number of duplicate images in my Katalog.

       

      What can I do to stop this?

       

      Greetings,

      David

          Hi David,

           

          Thanks for posting on Adobe forums.

          As you've mentioned that Sync was turned off, Lightroom was then no longer downloading any smart previews for synced files.These files are the synced Lightroom mobile images from other devices.

          If you've chosen to sync all the collections with your mobile devices, then Lightroom will keep uploading them. You may take a look at this discussion How do I remove duplicates in my Lightroom Catalogue?  to know how to eliminate duplicates.in Lightroom.
