I find it faster on my system to import RAW files via drag and drop from my CF card, to a folder that I pre-build on my main drive. Rather than import thru Lightroom.
And then importing into Lightroom via ADD. Even though it's a two step process, I feel (have not timed it) it's a faster import.
But where it falls down is sending a copy to a backup drive.
Is there a way that will allow the ADD function to be used for import, that will also allow the "Make a Second Copy to x- Drive" work?
Currently it is not active when Adding
No, there's no way to do that.
You'll have to add another manual step to your workflow where you drag the folder of images to another drive after you've populated that folder from the card.
thankyou Hal! that's what I thought.
