Operating System
Windows 10
Yesterday it got stuck showing "syncing 2 photos" and now it's gone up to 3. But if I filter by sync status I don't have any photos showing as syncing. Classic shows up as fully synced. It doesn't block anything else from syncing - it goes up to the number of photos I change + 3, syncs them, then goes back to 3. I've tried:
  • Pausing and unpausing sync
  • Waiting ages
  • Restarting Lightroom
  • Rebooting
Should I be deleting a sync cache folder somewhere? I can't see anything obvious.
Thanks for your help!

Check the Deleted bin in Lightroom (or LrWeb), to see if you can see three images still syncing (the thumbnail will tell you if that's the case). If you find them, delete them from Deleted and that should fix the problem.
