I cannot answer in Spanish, but you can click the Translate button at the bottom of any message and have the answer translated to Español.
There is no exporting involved in moving these files. And the settings will remain in your Lightroom catalog (these are not stored with the photos).
The instructions are the following steps:
- Using your Operating System, COPY (not MOVE) the entire folder structure containing your photos to the new disk, keeping the entire folder structure unchanged.
- In Lightroom, point to the top level folder, right-click on it (I think that's cmd-click on a Mac) and select Update Folder Location. Point to the new location of the top level folder on the new drive.
- When you are 100% sure Lightroom is pointing to the new drive and all edits and metadata are still associated with your photos), you can delete the photos from the internal drive.
This whole process is described in more detail, with screen captures, in Part 2 of this document: http://www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm
Also, please make sure you have backups of everything (catalog file and photos) before you do this. (And of course, you want to make regular backups of photos and catalog file anyway)

Please check the following link : How do I move my pictures to external hard drive?
Let me know if it helps.
With all due respect to Tanuj and to Julianne Kost, the link provided by Tanuj has a number of suggestions on how to perform this move of photos to the new hard drive, and some of them I consider unsafe, as explained in that thread and documented in reply #29 in that thread. The safest method is to do the move as I described above in reply #2 in this thread (and also discussed in that link provided by Tanuj).
