Sorry an old problem but starting to irritate me now. I have 3 photos that will not sync and for he love of me I cannot find them. Is there a way to delete the link to stop the sync process for these photos or does anyone have a simple way to track them down?
Regards and thanks

Thanks for the reply. Yes I have tried this possible solution and all of the Adobe products except Lightroom classic have sync correctly ie web, adobe Lightroom and my phone.

Hi PDS, sorry I missed your reply. I'm assuming you've checked the local sync status in Preferences > Sync tab > Sync Activity section?

If that's still not doing the trick, I might reset the local cache and let Classic reset sync. To do so, you'd need to quit LR and delete /Users/[your username]/Library/Caches/Adobe/Lightroom/Sync Data/Sync.lrdata and the restart LR. It'll take a while to count all the way up and down again.

Never had significant issues before but since the latest Classic update LR is stuck trying to sync any recently imported photos. Sync Preference just states that it is preparing to sync. I have tried rebuiding the sync data in preferences as well as resetting the local cache. Have logged in and out of my Adobe account on all of my linked devices as well as my laptop to no benefit.
Not sure what to try next.

Is it trying to sync up or down Mark? You could try rolling back to 8.3.1, see if that fixes it.

It was syncing up from my Laptop to allow me to use LR mobile on my ipad. (I use a laptop and desktop, both Macs with dropbox providing synchronisation of local copies of catlogs and masters etc). Syncing up from both machines is extremely unreliable (and 8.4 seems extremely slow in general) so I'm going back to 8.3.1 to see if things improve.
