Lightroom won't be able to recognize the new folder location on its own
You may go ahead and update the new folder location.
Please follow the below steps to update the folder location.
> Launch Lightroom and click on Library module
> Control -click (Mac) | Right Mouse -click (Win) on the Folder in the left hand side
> Choose Update Folder Location.
> Navigate to the folder/images in the new location
This will enable Lightroom to keep track of the set of folders/images.
Hope this helps.
Yes your solution by copying the Lightroom catalog and the original files to new location is correct. But I would not delete any files until you have copied them over. Than after copying them over, open Lightroom from the new location. Than after opening Lightroom from new location you will see that Lightroom will have a question about you original file location with a question mark. Just right click on the folder that has a question mark on it and navigate to the location of the original files that you copied over. Does this make sense?
Yes brilliant and easy. Thanks for your help.
