Basically, i mildly messed up and i dont know how. I was backing up all my files as i just got a new drive. Somehow i managed to swap all my files from my main drive into my backup drive. Everything still works fine and i have all my photos but i would rather have the backups on the backup-drive instead of it housing both backups and active files since that's quite literally, twice as big. I was just wondering if there is a way to switch photos from drive to drive, how do i do it?
In LR Move all the images back over to your main, internal, drive. Then use the File Manager program to make a COPY of them on the external.
You should use LR to do backups of images. If you do use LR it also adds the backup folders and files to the catalog so you end up with multiple copies in the grid and film strip views.
Back ups are Back ups and IMHO shouldn't be in the catalog.
Just drag the folders back to the main hard drive.
