Hi I am new to Lightroom. I have tried to move my collection to an external hard drive. When I drag the file to the new hardrive and file they fail to highlight in blue and the file returns to its collection. What an I doing wrong?

You can't move collections. Collections exist only in the Lightroom catalog, and they do not exist in folders and they do not exist on a hard drive (except in the trivial sense that they exist in the catalog on whatever drive that is on).

 

You can move folders or photos to an external HD. See the instructions in "Part 2 — Updating Folder Location" of this document: http://www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm
