To move just the photos, but keep the catalog itself on the laptop drive: How do I move only my photos to another hard drive, leaving the catalog where it is?

To move the catalog: How do I find and move or rename my catalog?

Hi Scott, moving the catalog may not be in your best interest as it may slow down the performance.
you should perhaps move the raw files storage off the c drive, this is the main storage consumer.
