I have a late 2015 iMac 27' - i5, 1TB, etc. I use LR6 for all my images - I import everything into LR and I have never deleted an image. I got a warning yesterday evening exclaiming that I am nearly out of space! Come to find out there are more than 39,000 in my LR library.....!
I freed up a little bit of space to get rid of the warning, however, I want to move that LR library to an external drive. I used to have 2 WD drives long, long ago. One still works, the other is dead, and I remember them being extremely slow. I am unsure of which route to go in 2019? Can I move everything to an external HDD and still function seamlessly? I'm not really a technical guy, so simple and effective is what I'm looking for. Essentially, I want to keep doing what I'm doing without filling up my internal HDD and slowing things down.
I realize this is pretty basic stuff, but there's just too much out there to sort through right now. I'm super busy with work and the holidays are here + I'm going to have a new nephew or niece in a couple weeks, so time is not really on my side at the moment.
I would really appreciate any tips or advice! Thank you all very much!
