Hi
Do you know how in the folders list, below all the folders of my photos, I can hide the list of all the old devices eg iPhone, iPad etc? See attached photo.

The list is getting long and gets in the way between my photos folders and collections.

Many thanks
Steve

Hi Steve, welcome to the forum. If you drag and drop the photos into "normal" folders (within Lightroom), then you can remove the old empty devices volumes. The photos will be easier to back up that way, as they'll be stored with your normal photos instead of the special mobile downloads package, and you can still use metadata filters to filter by device.

Brilliant. Thank you.
