Hi,
I have a Windows folder that has 2741 images that are in my Lightroom catalogue. When I do "synchronise" on that folder from the Lightroom folders pane it shows 81 images that are not in the catalogue. looking at some of these images in Windows I am sure that they are images that I do not want - I wish to delete them from the Windows folder. Is there an easy way to do this?
Thank you.

You can actually do the synchronize (that will import those 81 images) and then, in the Previous Import special collection select all of them and delete them, specifying that they be removed from the disk as well as from Lightroom.

Ah, of course - excellent. Thank you.
