Thanks Judy, sounds like your first sentence could be my workaround to ensure that at least i don't start a completely new catalogue, and see above post for JPEG reasoning.

Yes, yes, I don't understand why you think you need to start a new catalog. My one single Lightroom catalog references images spread out over multiple local and network drives, since I use it to track images that are not necessarily in the main archive. Although even now, my main archive is split across three drives because I need to buy a new big disk. Doesn't matter, Lightroom can track them on any mountable volume.

In the Folders panel, each drive gets its own top level listing so it is easy to see where any image resides.
