I recently purchased a new computer and I transferred all my images to an external hard drive and I moved the images using Lightroom so that it cataloged everything correctly. Lightroom was set up at that time to back up the catalog to the same external HDD.
Now I plug in my new computer upload the catalog from the back up and it works great.
Only one problem. When my external HDD is not plugged in - it can't find the catalog.
How do I set it up like I had it before where my catalog is on my computer and my back up is on HDD as usual.
Should I separately move my backup catalog to my computer? - Thanks!
