This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom CC: Ability to identify pictures not assigned to an album

Please add 'Not included in any albums' filter in Refine search in Lr Classic.

Whenever I delete an album, Lr CC tells me that the files in the album will not be deleted and will be kept in the All Photos. This is very unhelpful as, with time, lots of files which I no longer need build up in Lr CC creating junk and eating up space on mobile devices.

It would be great to be able to go and filter out all files that are not included into any albums and delete them from All Photos.

Agreed. I think about this often when I see this message. Currently I do a convoluted method of selecting all my synced collections (in Classic CC) and add the keywords "synced to cc" to all the photos. Then I go to All Synced Photographs under Catalog and filtering out all photos with that keyword. I then go through the remainder and make sure I didn't screw up and mis any collections then remove the rest that aren't supposed to be synced. It works but takes a while and has the potential to screw things up.

Thanks for sharing, Matt. Sure we can work our way round this weakness, but it would make more sense for Adobe to add this simple option saving us a lot of time and effort.
