I'm having trouble understanding how the new "cached media" functionality in LumaFusion 2.0 works.
I work with all of my media in the Photos app on a 256GB iPad Pro 10.5". I'm running iOS 12.3.1 and LF 2.0.2.
I did some housekeeping in LumaFusion today. I deleted some old projects that I no longer need. Then, I went in to Settings/Cleanup, toggled on to remove the unused Cached Media and pressed the broom button to cleanup. LF says that I cleaned up ~ 42GB of data. Yay me!! When I go into Settings on the iPad, and then iPad Storage, I can see that the usage of LF has gone down...it was previously 60+ GB, and now it's down to 24 GB. Things are looking good. BUT, my overall storage usage didn't budge. I'm still up against the ceiling at about 252 GB. So, I guess my question is two-fold....1). Is there a step that I'm missing? Is there something else that I need to do to free up that storage? In the old version of LF, you had to go into the Files App, Recently Deleted, and empty that folder to actually free up the storage, but my Recently Deleted folder in Files is empty. I've tried rebooting the iPad a couple of times, but that doesn't help.
Or, is something else going on? The unused Cached Media that I deleted from within the LF app still resides in the Photos App. That's the way it's supposed to work. But how does the media usage get calculated? Is there actually a second copy of the media stored in LF, (hence the bloated size of my LF app), or is it only "counted" once and therefore needs to be deleted from both the LF app and the Photos app before the storage space is released for use?
I've scoured the LF 2.0 User Manual, but can't find anything that explains how this actually works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
