[ New ]

I have GoPro cloud, so I want to delete GoPro video files from my computer. When I right click to delete from GoPro Quik, I get a warning message saying the action will delete the file from Quik and the cloud.  How to I delete the file from my computer without deleting it from the cloud?

Hello, @krs21713. After making certain that your media have been saved to the PLUS cloud, you can delete the files from your computer ( file finder or file explorer) instead of from Quik. 

 

First, locate the storage folder for the files through this path: /Users/<YourUserName>/Pictures/GoPro - Mac . 

 

Should you need your media, you can download them from plus.gopro.com to your computer but they may not be accessible through Quik for desktop again.
