I have built a new PC and put my LR cat on Drive D of my SSD.
When I go to Cat settings/ General it says the location is C:/Users/Jim/Pictures/Lightroom.
So I went to the Catalog and did an import from another catalog (pointed to D Drive)
It imported the cat without hassle but now I have double the number of photos and Cat settings still says he location is
My photos folder is now double the number of photos too.
I am putting off doing any work on my photos until I know what the hell LR is doing to my editing.
I am not a dummy but the way LR works really still baffles me after 3 years.
Am I alone????
It seems you have created a combined catalog of the C & D locations by importing.
Simply use the menu:
File >> Open Catalog
Then navigate to your catalog on the D drive.
Click the re-launch button and LR will open the catalog from the new location.
If you copied the previews to the D drive it should be quite quick, otherwise LR will generate new previews. See this link for further information.
Easy when you know how!!!
Thanks a lot Jon.
Keep well. James
