Is this a Lightroom Classic question?

 

If so, please follow the instructions in "Part 2 — Updating Folder Location" of this document: http://www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm

Unfortunately, LR has a reputation for sometimes dropping the ball when doing file system manipulation with large numbers of files. Thus my recommendation is to do the actual file move/copy using the computer's OS tools.

 

Using Finder/Explorer, copy or move the desired folders to the new drive.

 

Using LR, in the Folders panel, select the top-most folder you moved, right-click, select "Find missing folder" or "relocate folder" as appropriate, navigate to the new drive location. (See DJ's link for details on this part.)
