    It’s actually quite simple:


    • Review your backups – if something did go wrong, would you be able to restore and get everything back to where you are now? If the answer’s not an emphatic “Yes”, you should sort this out before going any further.
    • In your Lightroom catalogue, in Folders, click the + and add a new folder on the new drive
    • Still in Lightroom, now drag folders from your existing hard drive and drop them on the new drive.
