Updated: How to Move Your Lightroom Classic Photos To Another Hard Drive

A month or so ago I ran a “best of” video from Terry White on how to move your images to another drive because so many people have been asking me about it. When I posted it, I saw a few comments which said essentially that it’s great info – they just wish it was updated (Terry had recorded that video a few years back on an older version of Lightroom). Well, I talked with Terry about it and he was gracious enough to create a new updated version that is much shorter, quick and easy, and right to the point. Just another reason I love Terry! 🙂

Check out this quick video – really great stuff!

Thank you, Terry. As I’ve said many times before – you rock!

Heads up!
We’re getting close to the deadline to save $100 using the Photoshop World Conference Early Bird discount – it expires near the end of this month, so make sure you get your PSW tickets now and save the hundred bucks. Here’s the link with details and ticket info.

Hope this starts your Monday off on a great note. We’ll catch you back here tomorrow for a Lightroom Coffee Break. 🙂



P.S. Today over on my regular blog, scottkelby.com, I did a start-to-finish Lightroom tutorial on converting your images to B&W using the new B&W color profiles in Lightroom Classic 7.3 – here’s the link if you want to check it out: https://scottkelby.com/?p=47311

    I’ll be moving from PC with a couple of internal drives to an iMac with an internal SSD a large external HDD in a couple of months. Thoughts on moving the whole catalog… perhaps that’s a tutorial in itself?

    Thanks for the great tips!

    Hi Terry, I have a question closely related to this tutorial. I have previous filled up backup drives and stored them. I would like to retrieve images off of these drives and see what I can do to older images with new software. I am unsure exactly how to go about doing that. Is is possible to bring those images into my current LRcc catalog. Do I have to keep the backup drives plugged into a USB even after I have imported the desired photos? Just not sure how to safely go about doing the above. Would certainly appreciate your input.

    Thanks, Dale

    Perfect timing; just received a new 4TB HDD I need to move my images to, and this couldn’t have come at a better time…..
