Some LR Organization Questions
I am currently using LR with my dual-HD W7 PC. I keep LR, lrcat and lrdata are on an SSD HD and associated image originals are on a fast HD. Performance is excellent.
I'd like to add a second catalog to LR to manage some specialty photos that I keep on a external HD. Any problem keeping this external HD disconnected while LR is working with the original (first) catalog?
If I accidentally select the new (second) catalog while its associated external HD is disconnected I'll get lots of question-marks on my thumbs, but any harm done? Will all be OK again as soon as I connect the external HD?
Can I have copies of the same original in each catalog (and in each associated HD)?
Any interaction between the two catalogs or the two lrdata files?
