I´m new at Lightroom. I`ve installed the programm to my windows PC Windows 10 64.

The system asked me where to put the library directory. I did a wrong click and it was gone. I can see where Lightroom put ist to. Some file at my C: directory.

Because of lack of free space at C: I would like to change the directory to to my HD named D:

But I cannot find any posibility to do the change. Even at the forums I didn`t found any helpful hint.

So please help me to change the library directory to D:

Thanks

There isn't a single library directory. You choose that this nation when you import images, and you can import them to any folder on any drive that is connected to your computer. The library consists of all your images, in  all folders, on all drives, that has been imported into Lightroom that are contained in the catalog.

I'm sure it is so you'll buy their cloud space and put it there. It makes no sense. So now I'm stuck with using up my cloud space on my apple icloud because I can't always afford the Adobe subscription.  smh
