    Exporting a catalog without raw images?


      I have Lightroom catalog with about 70k images. It's 2.2TB. About 30% of the images are scanned negatives but most are from various DSLR cameras and are a raw+JPG.


      I will travel soon and want to bring the catalog with me on a small external HDD.  If I delete all the raw files I can get down to less than 1 TB. How do i do this and preserve all the catalog attributes such as location, people, develop setting and etc?


      If I 'export as catalog' it will export the raw files - we don't want that. If I delete all the raw files and then open the new Picture directory using the old catalog it does not see any files (it is looking for NEF files, not JPG).


      Any ideas?
