RAW Images imported from a Sony A7 III directly into Lightroom on iPad Pro 11" / iPadOS 13.4. After exporting them as original filetype some images are broken but not all. Where can I leave a bug report?

A copy of the raw file, the exported file and a screenshot of your export settings would be of great help. Can you provide those?

I can share two files:
A7_02066_original.ARW is the original RAW file copied from the cameras SD card
A7_02066_LR_exported.ARW is the the exported as original from Lightroom mobile

Here is a screenshot with my export settings. Sorry for the German language! :)

Okay, it seems to be a bit more complicated. I tried to reproduce it but it took three tries. The last try I exported seven raw files which should take some time. But Lightroom closed the export dialogue after a couple of seconds. Then I switched over to the iPadOS files app and at this time only one file was arrived at the target location (a USB C stick). After a couple of second the second file appeared and so on until all files were successfully exported. I suspect Lightroom mobile has some troubles with the export of large files. I will upload the rest of the original file, so you can reproduce the behavior. 
When I'm on vacation my workflow look like:
  1. Import of RAW files from my A7 III every evening, each is around 50MB in full resolution
  2. Rate and delete bad images
  3. When I'm back at home I export all raw files to a NAS, USB Stick or SSD and transfer it to the computer.
I know you can sync everything over the cloud but how long should it take with around 2000 images taken on a three week vacation? 
If I could have a wish for a Lightroom update... just implement a sync between Lightroom CC and Lightroom mobile via USB cable or wifi.

There is currently no real alternative to sync using the servers. It's "under consideration", however (which is great news). Please add your vote and comment here:
