How to identify images in LR Classic which have an uploaded RAW to the cloud?

I use Lightroom Classic on an iMac at home with Lightroom CC on my iPad on the road. My default use case is importing new images to Lightroom Classic and sync from there to my iPad. But when I am out and about, I sync my images just the other way around: via Lightroom on the iPad to Lightroom Classic. In that direction the raw files get uploaded to the cloud and clutter my available storage. Is there any chance to identify those images and delete the raw files from the cloud?

Dans LR Classic, les fichiers charger depuis LR CC, les mobiles (iPad par exemple) sont rapatriées automatiquement dans LR Classic et répertoriées dans des collections réunies sous dans le groupe "Depuis LR mobile" pour autant que ces mêmes photos aient été classées dans LR CC dans des Albums.
Il suffit de dupliquer ces collections dans LR Classic, vous remarquerez que le titre de la collection ainsi dupliquée par Copie de et le signe ~ devant le titre n'est pas allumé. Ensuite on sélectionne le titre de la collection initiale et on supprime cette collection en acceptant de supprimer les photos du Catalogue LR CC sur le Cloud.

In LR Classic, the files load from LR CC, the mobiles (iPad for example) are repatriated automatically in LR Classic and listed in collections united under in the group "Since LR mobile" provided that these same photos have been classified in LR CC in Albums.
Simply duplicate these collections in LR Classic, you will notice that the title of the collection thus duplicated by Copy of and the sign ~ in front of the title is not lit. Then we select the title of the initial collection and we delete this collection by agreeing to delete the photos from the Catalog LR CC on the Cloud.

Translation from Google, sorry !!!!

Hi Yves, thank you very much for the tip! It is a little bit cumbersome, but it works for my use case.

Unfortunately, LR doesn't make it easy to search on the sync status of photos.  Here's the only way I know how to do what you want.

1. In the Collections panel, select one of the collections synced with LR CC, indicated by the sync icon:


2. Hold down Cmd (Mac) or Ctrl (Windows) and click every other collection marked with the sync icon.

3. Do Edit > Select All.  Now all photos that are synced via collections from your LR 7 catalog to LR CC are selected.

4. In the Catalog panel, click on All Synced Photographs.

5. Do Edit > Invert Selection. Now all photos synced with LR CC that are not in synced collections are selected. These are the ones that originated from your iPad and which you chose not to move into a synced collection.

6. Do Photo > Remove From All Synced Photographs.  You'll see this dialog letting you know what will happen:

Since most of my images which I import on the iPad first are in synced collections as well, I will not fetch all images I wish via the inverted selection as you described it.
