    Moved Lightroom to a new hard drive; images are fine, but Catalog did not move. Help!

    I know that I screwed this up somehow! I read the article on how to move LR to a new computer or hard drive, but somehow I did something wrong. The images migrated just fine but without the changes n the catalog. Is there any fix or do I have to delete the images and start over again?
