    Imported images seem to get "stuck" in local storage

    When I import into Lr cloud, the originals get copied/cached at %AppData%\Local\Adobe\Lightroom CC\Data\xxxxxx\originals. So far, no surprises.

    6 MB vs 12 MB - Can I Expect Better Speed?

    My computer has really been screwed up by a Windows 10 upgrade. I am trying to resolve that with MS. As a result, Lightroom won't even open. I will try and resolve that with Adobe.
