I use Lightroom 5 and local disk as my supposed master.
I use GoodSync and an external drive as my backup.
When I am traveling I use my Macbook and the external drive - and this has caused the following problem;
Instead of just being a backup, my external drive is now a folder in Lightroom.
The develop settings are associated with the files on that drive and I have duplicates through the synchronisation process that I run with Goodsync.
Can I move the develop settings (All, Automagically) back to the files located on my local drive and remove the folder from Lightroom?I will manage my backup process differently.
Or .. do I create a new catalog and import the files from ... the external drive first? Or the local?Possibly external to ensure I don't lose any settings?
Any advice, especially if someone else has found themselves in this predicament, would be greatly appreciated!
