I have a HP PC with two 300GB HDDs, Drive C and Drive E.

Mostly everything is on drive C. Drive C is getting close to capacity.

If I move the Pictures Folder holding all my photos from Drive C to Drive E, will it confuse Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4?

Can I tell the programs to save subsequent files to Drive E?

Running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit, if it matters.


As mentioned, Photoshop wont care - no catalog.
Lightroom will show question marks over the image previews, but you can easily fix by right clicking from folders in the 'Folder' section (left in Library view) and 'Update Location'.

Also, if you move your Lightroom images and maintain the same folder/sub folder strucutures, you can just right click at the root (highest level) folder in Lightroom and click update location once, every image in every sub folder beneah that will then also appear.
