Moving Originals from NAS to EHD in Lightroom CC

Nov 13, 2019
Lightroom Version
Lightroom CC 3.0
Operating System
macOS 10.13 High Sierra
It seems my network connection and sync issues are the result of storing my originals on an NAS. I have tried to move the folder using the preferences panel in Lightroom CC from the NAS to my EHD. Each time I do this it only moves 50 photos (there are well over 100,000). Adobe was no help, they suggested dragging and dropping the folders onto the EHD but that didn't work. Does anyone have a fix or a sure fire way to move my originals folder from the NAS to the EHD. I have photos in the cloud that wont sync since adobe cloud can't see the network through the NAS.

In Preferences check the Path to Local Storage. There should be a folder inside the parent folder that is probably named "Lightroom CC"
When Lightroom (Cloudy) is not running , Copy the folder on the NAS (that should be named "Lightroom CC" to the new location.
Restart Lightroom (Cloudy).
In Prefences, change the Local Storage location to the new parent of "Lightroom CC"
Restart Lightroom
