    Dropbox

    Thank you for responding. I misunderstood and did think Dropbox was cloud based storage. I still don't understand exactly how LR and Dropbox interact. I have my files on external drives from which I do my LR editing. The files are not on my computer. I do backup the catalog to Dropbox so that I...

    Dropbox

    Hello, I have LRCC 6.8 and I am running out of space on my 2012 Macbook Pro intermittently to a critically low amount while using LR, causing it to nonfunction until I delete files from the computer. Dropbox is using 141GB out of the 251GB of flash storage. Since Dropbox is cloud based why...

    Smart previews

    one more thing. I am familiar with the smart previews, which have always automatically been available each time I opened up LR.

    Smart previews

    Thank you for replying. Only the original photo is available. The smart preview was available before I closed and backup up the catalog but now none of them are there. This hasn't ever happened before.

    Smart previews

    Smart previews were built during downloading files to LRCC/6 but upon reopening the program later they were no longer visible. Does anyone know why they aren't appearing or how I can find them?

    LR doesn't see my photos on my ext HD

    Haha. Pretty clever! I have learned the reason is LR can only reference one disc drive. Not just one at a time ( which is what I originally thought) but only one period. And if that one fails LR will then reference the second one.

    LR doesn't see my photos on my ext HD

    That's the problem. I tried again after confirming that the disc is a carbon copy with name etc and it still won't reconnect the images. I can't figure out why or what has changed to cause this problem.

    LR doesn't see my photos on my ext HD

    I think you are correct that the name of the volume might not be exactly the same. Because of your reply I now recall that I may have inadvertently changed the name somewhat. Thank you. As far as why I want this....The second drive is exactly that, a backup. I just wanted to confirm that the...

    LR doesn't see my photos on my ext HD

    Thank you for replying. I don't have both external drives on at the same time. LR has always seen the photos on whichever drive happens to be connected.

    LR doesn't see my photos on my ext HD

    I have two OWC ext drives that are carbon copies of each other. LR recognizes my photos (48K) from one of the drives but only sees some of the photos on the other. I have tried adding the missing photos back to the catalog but LR says they are already imported, which is correct, but it doesn't...
