I'm planning to move my image folders to another media device I see where you can do this in Lightroom and all stays consistent. All I've seen is moving one by one. Unless I missed it. I have 610 folders to move so moving in bulk would be best for me. Any resources you could point me to? Thx in advance

For small volumes (ie a single folder) I would use option 1. For largescale moves I would use Option 2. There are too many things that can go wrong with massive file moves that are totally outside the control of Lr.

Before moving anything I would check for missing files or folders and resolve any issues arising (Menu/Library/FindMissingFiles) to your satisfaction before starting a major move. In that way you can exclude confusion/mayhem caused by pre-existing conditions.
