So I'm declunking my Mac and going for a fresh install as it's been doing some pretty weird stuff recently and I want to freshen things up.
I've copied my itunes catalogue and all my music and backed up using time machine as a precaution.
Now for Lightroom, what should I do? I was thinking of moving my photos to my external drive using lightroom, then moving the catalogue file but I can't seem to do it, and basically I'm muddling around with something I don't really understand.
Once I've backed everything up I'll be wiping my internal drive, rebooting and reinstalling my software then moving the files back onto my computer.
Would really appreciate some plain English advice here so as to save me losing all my edits and having to begin from scratch with a load of raw files.
Thanks in advance, Tom
Move you photos to the desired external HD using your operating system. Put the catalog file on your fastest hard disk if there is enough space, then double-click on it to open it. Then, in Lightroom, reconnect to the photos using these instructions: Adobe Lightroom - Find moved or missing files and folders
