A nice quick one today. Chris asked: “I’m having problems with the new Lightroom. LR will export the photos but it’ll get deleted immediately. ” He goes on to explain that the images initially appear in the export folder, but then they disappear again, as if they’re being automatically deleted.
First place to look in this case…? Disc space!
If there’s not enough room on the hard drive, Lightroom can’t write the files, the placeholders disappear again and it sends you a friendly error message. Free up some disc space or export to another drive, and the problem is fixed!
