I have two 3TB external drives (Drive E & F) running on my PC (Window7), Drive E has all of my images (~60k) and Drive F is used as my backup where I copy over almost all of the files (some are silly images that I don't care if I lose). Drive E just crashed. How do I now redirect LR5 to link up with my backup Drive F? As a side note - I backup my LR settings on my core drive, which is also where LR5 resides. Thanks, bill
One way would be to change the drive letter of F: to E: assuming the path on F: is the same as was on E: aside from the drive letter.
The LR way is to right-click on the top-level folder(s) and choose Locate Missing Folder or whatever the exact phrasing is, nowadays, then browse over to the copy on F:.
Unfortunately I did not duplicate the hierarchy of the two drives but if need be I can drop down one level and do the right click to Locate Missing Folders. Seems pretty simple. Thanks ssprengel.
