Hi, my friend has got lightroom 6 v6.0 and wants to transfer his raw files from one hard drive to another and he asked me what to do but i was not sure, does anyone know how to transfer raw files from one drive to another? Thank You!
Hi johnboy ,
While Akash's links are good in general, your best option is probably to move the files externally from LR then reconnect them in LR.
LR is not a file browser, and it can have problems when moving large numbers of files.
Backup the catalog.
Exit LR if it is running.
Using Finder/Explorer, move the files to the new drive by drag & drop of the root folder.
Open LR, go to the Folder panel in the Library module.
Select the top-most folder you moved. Right-click, select "relocate" or "find missing" or whatever the current text is for that option.
