Hi - can somebody help me? I have an older PC with Photoshop Elements and approx. 150,000 images, 1.7 TB. I have to move to a new PC. What is the best way to move this to a new PC and at the same time keep all albums and tags with the same hierarchy as on the old one?

Regards

Johan Martin Lium

Hi - on my old PC I have PSE 2018, and backup has run with it. Can I run restore to the new machine with version 2020 or 2021?

Yes.

The first part restores both the catalog and the photo files tree, the last one converts the restored catalog folder into another new catalog folder of the current format.
