LR3 / LR4 - Keeping images on different drives
Jun 13, 2012

Hey,

I've never done it. I surely will pretty soon. The thing is... 1) I don't know how to do it PROPERLY and 2) I have a MAYBE cool idea and I'd like to know if that's possible

1) How do you guys handle multiple drives on your computers? I actually need only two places: first one is my HD with the newest and the most often used photos and the second one is an external drive for all those photos I want to keep because "one day I might need them". What are your tested solutions? Or maybe you know any good article / video about it?

2) I thought about something like this: making a "SMARTdrive" which has three rules:
a) if the photo is less than 2 months old: don't touch it
b) if the photo is faved, labeled or rated 2 or more: don't touch it
c) other way: move it to my SMARTdrive

Is this possible? And more importantly: does it make any sense?

Thanks
