If I have a folder and sub folders with my pictures the XMP and the catalog. That is: .lrpreview, .xmp, .lrdata my be other files.
I copy the folder and all the sub folders to an external disk.
Now my disk in the PC creches and I install LR from the beginning.
If I import all the folder and sub folders from the external drive to new folders and sub folders I re-created in my disk on the PC, will lightroom recognize all the pictures and data base?
Is this the way to do it? where can I read a detailed explanation.
