Hi, I hope you can help.  I'm using Lightroom Classic. I had to fresh install the program to a new SSD C: drive but the original install and all my photos and catalogues are on the original, now second, E: hard drive. How do I point the new install to find all the old photos and setting without having to (import)? each folder?  Thanks!

Just double-click on the catalog file (the file with an .lrcat extension) on the E: drive to launch Lightroom with that catalog. From now on, Lightroom knows that this is the catalog to use if you have set to load the 'Most Recent Catalog' in the Lightroom preferences.
