I've maxed out the space on my original hard drive and LR and PS were running super slowly, so I added a new SSD. What is the best,  most efficient way to move LR Classic and PS with all my settings and preferences to the new SSD drive. (Leaving my photos on the og drive.)

uninstall ps and lr (https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html)

 

then with the CC application opened, choose the 3 dots in the upper right corner and then choose Preferences. in the preferences panel select Creative Cloud and then look for the Install Location drop down https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/manage-cc-individual-membership.html

Hello, I'm afraid this would not move the preferences to the new drive.

You would need to navigate to each app's preferences folder and copy the content, then paste it on the new drive (if the OS is reinstalled on that disk)
