Hi
I must be doing something strange.
If I mark rejected phots with an X (to reject it) and then go to the Photo menu to bulk remove them, I only get the option to remove them from the collection, not delete them from disk.
Is anyone else having this issue or I have failed to tick a box somewhere?TIA.

This is normal. You have to be in ‘All Photographs’ or in a folder to remove images from the catalog and from disk. If you are in a collection, then they’ll only be removed from that particular collection.
