I am copying all my photos from one external hard drive to another. I think there is a problem with the 4TB hard drive I am using. That or the data is in a bit of a mess.
This is the plan.
- Copy all the photos to a new 4TB external hard drive.
- Copy the Lightroom catalogue from my PC hard drive to the new 4TB external hard drive. I have a backup copy on another hard drive.
- Disconnect the old hard drive.
- Use Lightroom using the new hard drive and catalogue.
And to prove this I am going to try to use Lightroom on my old Dell laptop.
Lets see how this goes.
I will report back tomorrow with progress, but to answer the first question
Over 1 day!
