I use Lightroom Class CC on my MacBook Pro. I just realized that tons of photos I thought I had deleted from *both* my Lightroom catalog and my Mac are still on my Mac. Possibly, I accidentally clicked "Remove" instead of "Delete from disk" a few times, though it's happened to so many folders that seems unlikely. Any other idea how it might have happened?
My more important question is: how do I find all of these photos that I thought I had removed from Lightroom and delete them from my Mac, since they are taking up precious storage space? They are mixed in with photos that I have *not* deleted from Lightroom.
For example, I have the following folder:
Pictures > 2018 > 2018-01-04
When I look at this folder in Lightroom, it contains 7 images.
When I look at this folder using Finder, it contains 142 images.
How can I quickly find, select and delete the 135 images I don't want?
Any advice appreciated!!!
The easiest way is to right-click the folder with 7 images and Syncronize Folder and REIMPORT the 135 images you don't want and then immediately go to Previous Import, select them all and Delete from Disk. You could just synchronize the parent folders if you are sure about which photos to delete
Thanks so much!
