I have two large external drives with about 2.5 TB of data. About half the storage is images and videos that I want to put on a new NAS drive/device. I don’t want to carry over junk, duplicates and non photo/video files.
I am hoping Lightroom can help scour the mounds of folder structures on these drives and copy images/videos the new drive that I want to catalogue and keep clean as a working platform for all images and video. Once completed I plan to format the original drives and copy the cleaned-up content back to them as part of a backup strategy.
Can Lightroom help? If so, how? If not, is there some other application for Mac OS X that I can use for help with this? One problem I had with my original attempt is I wasn't sure how to move images and rename folders to get the new drive contents to make sense, so I formatted it and am looking to try again.
(steps for this operation would be helpful)
