I want to move all of my files from a desktop and my laptop to one central Raid drive that will be connected to my desktop. 

How do I move the files/catalog from my laptop to that drive so I don't loose any edits?

 

Thank you!

The photos can go on the Raid drive, the insturctions are in "Part 2 — Updating Folder Location" of this document: http://www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm

 

I don't know if you can use a catalog on a RAID drive.

I don't understand how that will work. 

My RAID drive will no longer be connected to the laptop after the files move. 
I want to take the catalog off the laptop and combine it with my current catalog on my desktop. I am sorry I am not understanding.
