    Moving 20,000 images in Lightroom to external drive?

    Ernie1953

      Please advise: I have a late 2012 desktop mac with 1 TB storage, of which I have 200 GB free. I would like to move at least half of my 40,000 images to a new external drive in Lightroom. I have thunderbolt and I think just USB 2.0 connections. I would like to buy a >1 TB external drive specifically for photos via Lightroom. The last time I tried this was a few years ago, and the transfer failed. What's the key to moving large files and keeping them accessible in Lightroom? I am looking to spend $400 or so on memory and cable.
