importing all photos in new catalog

Post by johnlill » 04 Jan 20 18:15

I'n done evaluating PSU and I'm purchasing it today. I have about 8,000 images on an internal drive and 20,000 on an external drive. Yesterday I tried to import all 20,000 images on the external drive at once. After several hours, I still had the spinning wheel (Mac Mojave). Should I import again in small batches?

Yes probably better to do it in smaller groups, otherwise you will need to leave the machine running for quite a long time, several thousand items might take all night or more depending on the speed of the drives you have.
