LR cc downloader - LR CC sync

Jun 29, 2019
Lightroom Version
LR CC 4.3
Operating System
  1. macOS 10.15 Catalina
  1. I have done a new export from LR CC cloud using the Lightroom downloader.
Results as follows as per Download report:

Originals downloaded: 145,968

Edited version downloaded: 44,117

Failed downloads: 1

Total: 190,086

“Get info” on export folder: # files = 195,346

2. I have done a sync (Local Storage preferences, you have the option of changing how much of your available disk space Lightroom is allowed to use. Originals are always backed up to the cloud. You have the options to store a copy of all originals and smart previews on your computer’s hard drive as well. )

on a new external drive:

“Get info” on sync folder: #files = 134,956

3. # of files on LR CC cloud across all devices= 145,968

4. There have not been any new photos uploaded to the cloud

5.There have been no Sync or Export issues reported.

How are these file counts reconciled and how do i know everything is backed up properly?

The count of All Photos on Lightroom.Adobe.com is always the controlling number (so the actual number on the Adobe Cloud) which based on your figures will be the 145,968 - same number as the Downloader reported. That would sound like you have your local copy.
