I need some help. I got 6k images in cloud sync, but no sync'd collections on either laptop.

I think I imported photos into my ipad via sd card reader and that is what is syncing. But If I go to delete image in lightroom classic app on my ipad, it says image will be deleted. But I am currently downloading them all from cloud to my current laptop.

Its all super confusing. Any SYNC pros out there have any advise?

My goal: remove all images from my adobe cloud sync.

Assuming this doesn't touch the actual files on my machines where they now live (either downloaded from sync or imported when I returned from travel).
