    Library on external drive with two computers and a backup...

    andkolb

      Hi there,

       

      I'm a video editor (and Adobe Cloud user) and I'm about to start using Lightroom for my photographs.

       

      I don't want to have my photos in the same place as my other projects just to keep everything sorted.

       

      My question's are:

       

      1. Can I put everything (photos and catalog) on an external hard drive?

      This shouldn't be a problem I think.

       

      2. Can I use this one hard drive and switch between my desktop and laptop? Both have the latest version of Lightroom.

       

      3. Can I use CarbonCopyCloner to backup everything to a second hard drive in case hard drive 1 fails?

      And if hard drive 1 crashes continue working on hard drive 2 without any problems?

       

      Thanks a lot
