Lightroom Classic External Hard Drive Import "recognize" Edit

Aloha everyone,

 

I recently switched macbooks and would like to start editing off of an external hardrive versuse my internal stoarge. I use to import (Copy) photos from SD card to internal stoarge through lightroom, label, edit, export, submit final photos to client. 

 

I've always kept two External Hard Drives as Master Backups, I'd like to take one of these and and use with Lightroom Classic editing which would give me easy acess to past projects (photos) for easy editing.

 

My question is how do I get lightroom to reconize an external hardrive that already has photos on it? What would be the specific process of "importing" or having Lightroom Classic reconize this drive and photos within?

 

Thanks!

We are all here responding to question in our free/spare time. We are not Adobe, except for a few that chime in from time to time only.

Trying to bump (on the same day!) and show impatience doesn't help, rather the opposite!

 

If you need immediate help, you always can try the official Adobe support.

Hi,

I do have an issue making LrC recognize a new external SSD. I've already used many external drives with no problem but since they're reaching full capacity I got a new one, that doesn't appear in "Dossiers" (files: I use French language like the other SSD but only appears "volumes" (see attached screenshot)Capture d’écran 2023-11-29 à 14.28.28.png

I'm not questioning what you do in your free time only ensuring my question doesn't get lost in the alogrithm. Nothing Personal.  Please don't respond if your not trying to help.

@JKM304 

There is NO IMPORTING. This is so important I am going to say it three more times. NO IMPORTING. NO IMPORTING. NO IMPORTING.

 

I hope that is clear.

 

What you need to do is UPDATE FOLDER LOCATION and point LrC to the external hard drive. See "Part 2 — Updating Folder Location" of this document. In particular, see Figure 8.
