I have a Macpro with 4 internal hard drives. I keep photos on one of the drives and videos on two of the other drives and swap out these drives with other drives that have videos on them. I also use external drives that have videos on them. I want to import videos from all of the different drives that I swap back and forth.
1. What will happen if I tag videos on the internal drives and then swap them out with other drives? Will it just show a broken link to the video until I put it back in?
2. Are there any issues with doing this?
1. When the drives(s) with videos are removed from the computer the thumbnail for the video will have a '?' badge on it to indicate the file as being offline. Also, the drive itself will be shown as offline in the Folder panel. When drive is put back into computer Lr will see it and the '?' will disappear.
2. There's no reason why you can't /shouldn't do what you propose, but ensure the drives are uniquely named.
