Recently I installed my copy of LR 6.14 on a new laptop. I installed a 2nd drive (E:) in it for storing photos for LR.
For some reason I am unable to import the photos from my E: to my D:. I have searched in the manual for a solution by have not found one.
Any idea what I am doing wrong here? I bet is is something very simple.

Thanks
Zack Schindler

I am so glad that I found this forum!

What I would like to do is move all of them all to my E:.

Also is it possible to have LR create folders based on years and then have it automatically put photos in them based on when the photos was created?

I will give that a try. Thanks, However I don't mind if I loose my catalog from my old PC. There are a lot of duplicate photos and I really would not mid starting fresh on a new PC.

Sometimes that's not a bad idea, but a lot of work Zack! You could try sorting your duplicates (thread below just updated)

How do I clean up duplicate photos? | The Lightroom Queen

Also, you might consider writing the edits you did to the photos before the new Import (so Ctrl-S / Cmd-S) - you won't then see the history of develop steps but the state the photo was in when last edited will be saved (and will import with those changes)
