I use PSE 2020 for digital scrapbooking, and I keep all of my photos in the Photos app on my Macbook pro. I would like to use the PSE organzier ONLY for digital scrapbooking supplies (mostly jpg files), having them reside ONLY on a portable SSD drive. I don't want to keep the digi-scrap files on my hard drive on my Macbook. Is this possible? How?
I have consistent drive letters on my external hard drives (PLURAL!) Organizer recognizes the drive letter, but if one of the drives is not plugged in (mounted), Organizer sees the files on that drive as missing. Is there a way to have Organizer see the removeable hard drives as "external media" like DVDs? I know to plug the drive in when I want to use one of the files, but when I want to look for legitimate missing files,I don't want to see the files from the drives that aren't plugged in. Or does someone have another work-around to suggest.
I don't want to make more than one catalog.
Is there a way to make a printout of the missing files with their path? Then I could just go through the list and look for files that aren't on an unplugged drive.
