    Update of XMP files when editing with pictures drive disconnected

    Ed Buell

      I have my catalog with smart previews on an SSD drive. My pictures reside on a second external drive.  I can then make

      picture adjustments both on LR Mobile or on my laptop with only the SSD drive attached.

       

      I also have metadata written to XMP files on the pictures external drive.

       

      Here's the question.  When I edit photos on the laptop with the external picture drive detached, will the XMP files get automatically

      updated when I subsequently start LR with the external drive attached?
