I have Lightroom5 on a MacBook Pro and I have an external drive (which is not attached most of the time). When I finish working on my images in Lightroom5 I attach the external drive and I want to move those Folders,Catalogues and Images to the external drive to free up space on my HD.
The problem I have is that when this is done and I close down Lightroom and want to repeat this process on another day, Lightroom5 does not immediately know where the Folders,Catalogues and Images are when I reconnect the external drive. I spend a lot of time trying to see the external drive and the HD so I can move the next batch of Folders,Catalogues and Images. Is there an easy way to get LR to see the External Drive? I move everything in Lightroom so my expectation is that LR should know where everything is!!
I am doing something wrong, is there a function in LR that I need to turn on?
Is MAC recognizing your external hard drive ?
Also I exactly did not understand the workflow, why are you moving the files daily?
You can keep all the files on external hard drive and work from there.
Good Afternoon Jitendra,
Happy New Year.
Yes Mac recognises the external drive, it can be seen on my desk top. I am not transferring files on a daily basis. Only when the HD on my MacBook Pro starts to fill up.
I hope this clarifies things.
