In Lightroom CC preferences, check the path and size for temporary local storage.
I tried to change to my D: drive but it fails, doesn't start the "file path check" nor "images validation".
Is it possible to instal lightroom CC on a custom folder?
Installaed Lightroom on D:, migration still fails

When you migrate a Lightroom Classic catalog to Lightroom CC, two things must happen:
1: The images from the Lightroom Classic catalog must be available, because they need to be uploaded to the cloud. You can't "only migrate a catalog", you'll migrate everything.
2: Because these images are first copied to a new location, that new location needs to have enough space for that.
So, first of all make sure that the NAS is connected, because that is where your original images are. Then in Lightroom CC, go to Preferences - Local Storage and change this to your D: drive*. And check that 700 GB is enough to hold a copy of all your original images. Then try to migrate that catalog again.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS INSTALLING LIGHTROOM CC ON YOUR D: DRIVE! LIGHTROOM CC NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED IN THE DEFAULT LOCATION ON THE C: DRIVE.
Thanks for the support, but unfortunately i haven't succeded yet.
I also checked the classic CC catalog and there was some original image link missing, sorted it but still get the same migration error.
- The orginal image are available and the NAS is mapped and connected, in lightroom classic CC every image is linked to the orginal.
- The new location on the NAS has plenty of space 1 TB free space ( the orginal images are about 380 GB). In my C: i only have 35 GB available.
The path name is the mapped NAS folder
This are the image of the migration process that fails
When this phase is finished it appears some other text, but it's to fast to read then I get error message.
Any new suggestion?
Should I try to split the catalog in smaller pieces? Will I be able to merge them togheter afterward in Lightroom CC?
I’m not sure, but I think that Lightroom CC cannot use a NAS for external storage.
