Moving PSE2019 to new computer with pictures on NAS

I am trying to move my PSE2019 catalog files to a new computer, and keep all my photos on a shared NAS drive (mapped to P:\).  It seems like any "move catalog" option also includes moving the pictures.  Is there a way of moving catalogs and keeping the photos on a shared P:\ drive?

Thank you,

Darren

You find your catalog folder from the menu Help >> System information.

You can copy or move it elsewhere and its contents won't change. I would not store the catalog folder on the NAS, anyway.
