Re: Lightroom newbie question - culling for real

Thanks.

I'm planning a tidy up of my photo folders, originally OK but getting a little untidy, so I was considering using LR to move the files to a new clean structure and import them at the same time. Then I'd be sure it knew about them. Undecided at present which way to go.

I had previously installed the trial of the cloud based LR version (now replaced with Classic), and this did in fact create a separate directory in Users/...Appdata/ etc. Exactly what people were saying LR didn't do! And this is where it held the files including those marked for deletion (and subsequently deleted). Ample scope for confusion.

(Classic doesn't seem to know about these files)

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Adobe\Lightroom CC\Data\a5055bfb542a4549996220c97477c4d1\originals\<date>

So I copied this directory before I uninstalled the trial. It's still there, it's 5GB and I can view the files - it's a real directory not a database, and I didn't put it there.
