Hi, I recently uploaded all my photos to the cloud via CC. I subsequently installed the LRC on my desktop and began to sync. I got few thousand pics in and decided I wanted them to sync to a portable hard drive instead. How can I restart this process? I see a butto that says delete all syncd data but does that erase the cloud too?

No process needs restarting. Nothing need be Deleted. Nothing requires Importing.
*See the 'Hint' below!
Open the Lr-Classic Preferences to the 'Lightroom Sync' Tab and define [Choose] the portable Drive as the Location for downloaded files to be saved.

Restart LrC and future downloads go to that location.

For photos that have already downloaded to the default download folder {MobileDownloads.lrdata} (that appears like an additional Drive), you can 'Move' them over to a folder on the portable Drive by Drag & Drop in the folder panel.

Notes: You can only Sync ONE Classic Catalog with the Cloud.
Hint: Rename the Portable Drive with a Drive Letter that is further down the alphabet (eg. "P:" ) Then it will always be linked to the Catalog with the same Drive letter "P:" and never appear to be 'Missing'.
