    Is there a way to copy my original files with to a backup hard drive with out reimporting?


      I am trying to make a backup copy of everything on an external hard drive I can work from. I have saved the backup catalog to new hard drive, and I can copy my originals to the new hard drive outside of lightroom, but I don't know how to get lightroom to be able to work from the new copy. Do I have to reimport everything? I also tried "Find missing folder" but then it moves the folder to the new hard drive and I don't have two working copies.


      I am using Lightroom4. My original files are stored on an external hard drive. I don't know of anyway to copy files within lightroom.
