Hi All,

just today Adobe was able to fix the sync problem I had with Lightroom classic. The problem was that it crashed every time immediately when the sync with CC was activated so I had to keep the sync switched off now for quite some weeks.

Have been in contact with Adobe regarding this and after a lot of back and forth and testing etc it was solved today. The whole thing started when I activated the sync on one rather big collection but it was found out now the one corrupt image file in the collection caused the sync problem. It was of course not so easy to find that but immediately after I had deleted the corrupt file the sync worked again so I was really really that Adobe was in the end able to solve this.

Anyway just have a question now because the sync in now working again as it should, I noticed that LR is now syncing quite often something (I can see that form the sync bar) but its even syncing something when I I am not doing anything with stuff I have the sync enabled for?
So I am just curious what LR is doing or syncing when I am working for example in a collection which for which sync is not on?

Regards,
Tom

You can click where it says "syncing ...." and you should be able to see exactly what is syncing.

if you click on the blue words it should take to to a window that will after a short period of time list those 50 images and advise whether there are any errors.

Hi,

I have tried that now to click on the blue sync but it leads me into the LR preferences sync window but not saying anything about what is syncing.

Its not a big deal, I was just curious

Regards,
Tom
