How do I place the Lightroom Library on an External Drive?

Nov 20, 2007 3:03 PM

Q: How do I change the location of the Lightroom Library on an external disk drive whilst also ensuring that lightroom maintains the connection with the new location?

A: The easiest way is to copy the folder containing the Lightroom Catalog and the Previews to the new disk drive, navigate to the new folder location, then double click on the Catalog file to relaunch.

Note: the Lightroom catalog and preview package use the lrcat and lrdata extension respectively.
