    Moving LR Catalog from internal to external hard drive

    Richard Creagh



      My computer is filling up so I want to move all my photos and do my LR work from an external hard drive. I've been reading a few of the forums on moving everything. I've copied the folder my images are in to the external drive. I've also copied the Lightroom folder in Finder (containing the .lrdata and .lrcat stuff) to the external drive. If I delete these two folders from my computer and just locate them in LR from the external drive (when all the question marks pop up on the images) then will everything work as it did before?


      I'm using LR 5.7.1 and OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. The hard drive is a 2TB Samsung M3 (if any of all that makes any difference).


      Thanks in advance,
