I would copy the PSD files to the new location using your computer operating system and then delete from Lightroom Library, choosing to also delete from disk. Finally remove the folder from the LR Library.
Thank you @99jon. That proved to be the fastest method.
(I realize I'm replying to an old thread. That doesn't make it any less relevant...)
I am looking at a picture in Lr and I want to drag it to a folder in the File Explorer and have it removed from the catalog. In my other photo management software, that requires a click, drag, and drop. In Lightroom I need to:
- right click on the file,
- choose Show in Explorer,
- copy it (e.g., Ctrl+C),
- close that Explorer window,
- paste it in the already open Explorer,
- return to Lr,
- press Delete, and
- choose Delete from Disk.
Really? Am I missing something? Maybe it's just because I'm used to it, but I surprised I can't just drag and drop the file.
