new iMac will Lightroom work?

I am getting new iMac to replace my 2015 one.

It is mostly because i can't stand waiting... and waiting when it just boots up, or when i fresh login, or wake it up - it has the "normal" spinning hdd.

Other than that it is fine, in particular, the 5K display is as good as it ever was.

My concern is, Adobe Lightroom.

Is it going to work when i restore it on new physical machine?

Also, not sure how to setup the new one.

If i "restore" it from the current backup, things will be easy and nice, except I can't account for some 200GB on my current disk. I mean i will be "wasting" 200GB of the ssd for i don't know what.

If i try to setup things piecemeal, it will likely take a lot of time, but potentially save 200GB of ssd storage.

What do you guys do? Restore form the last backup of the old machine? Or just start fresh?

All help appreciated.

Thanks
