After buying my new SSD to pop into my drive dock, and copying my catalog/previews files from Lightroom over to it to improve the system performance, I'm advised "NOPE!" Adobe needs to fix it. If I am going to continue to lease this software for $120/year then they should make my system handle my 150,000 + images much faster.
