Moving external drives to new Mac
3 months ago

Over 90% of our photos are on an external hard drive (Western Digital My Passport 1 TB) connected to an older MacBook Pro. We have started a new iPhoto Library on the newer MBP but want to be able to access the photos on the older Mac, to which the external drive is connected. What is the best workflow option to accomplish this? Should we disconnect the hard drive from the older MBP and reconnect to the newer (Retina) MBP? Or should we just leave the external drive connected to the older MBP? The Retina MBP is faster, but there are thousands of images we would like to be able to access on the WD drive. Thanks for any input.
