    Better to upgrade to CC directly from previous Lightroom, or Lightroom Classic?

    davefeldman Level 1

      When upgrading to Lightroom CC from the previous Lightroom, is it better to do so directly (i.e., just open Lightroom CC and let it do its thing), or to first open Lightroom Classic and let it transfer/upgrade the library, then upgrade to Lightroom CC?

       

      (I tried the direct-upgrade thing and noticed that all the folders are gone—my album hierarchy is not just a flat list. So, for instance, I'm wondering if the two-step upgrade would help with that.)

       

      If the two-step upgrade is a better approach, I guess I also now need to know how to start over since I did the one-step already...

       

      Thanks.
