Virtual Copies syncing with LR CC only sometimes? It's getting really frustrating.

Hello everyone, I'm not sure which forum to place this in since it deals with both LR Classic and CC but I decided on here. I use my LR Classic to import all of my photos onto my desktop at my home computer. I then pick out the photos that I want to edit and then create virtual copies. All imported photos sync fine with CC but only about half of my VC's will sync. That ratio varies, so it's not always half... but generally it sits around 50%. All photos are imported into the same general collection always and all VC's are made within this same collection. This collection is of course set to sync with CC. Now if I make a virtual copy of my virtual copy, then that 2nd VC will then sync! I'm about to pull my hair out over this because it's very time consuming to go through to see exactly which VC's have synced and which ones didn't... then go chase those down and create a 2nd VC. Plus it's mudding up my collections by having two copies of the same image.

Any help with this would be fantastic! Hopefully this is something that someone here has run across in the past and has a solution.

Hi and welcome!

Sounds frustrating. With the ones that aren't appearing in the synced Collection, are they appearing in your All Synced Photos? That might help us track it down a bit further!
I just looked, and they are not appearing in the All Synced Photos either.

Hi Jason. That is a weird one. When you look at them in the collection, do they have the little sync icon on them?

Stranger and stranger. What happens if you drag them to All Synced Photos? Does the count go up?
