If you are using a USB thumbdrive to transport the Project and the media, I would plan on copying those over to the same drive letter and folder structure, as from the original machine. If you do not, PrE will ask you where the media files are, if the drive letter has changed.
I would NOT try to edit to/from a USB thumbdrive, and ONLY Copy over the files, in the same hierarchy, as that original machine, or be prepared to help PrE find the new locations. It makes it easy, but you need to be prepared.
Good luck, and travel safely,
And the best way to move your project to another drive is to use the program's Project Archiver.
This tool will move your project files as well as your source media files to wherever you direct it, maintaining the links from the project to the media in the process.
Thanks for the mention of the Project Archiver. As I normally set up Projects on externals, in anticipation of migrating them between my computers, I had just not thought to mention that. The OP will benefit from that tip!
One thing for the OP to remember is that many systems will not boot properly, if a thumbdrive is attached first. Many USB devices get in the way, if plugged in and turned on, prior to boot up. My Epson printer MUST be turned OFF, or my laptop will not boot. Many have had the same thing happen with most thumbdrives too.
Thanks - that is exactly the tool I need as I wasn't sure where all the files were stored on my PC - sounds like this tool will do it for me and I can archive to my USB drive. Excellent - thanks!
