    Hi user4711,

    Before doing any database work, I would always recommend that you make a backup of your database.

    You can use Tools > Database > Database Maintenance to remap your images' location on your old hard drive to the new location. In the Database Maintenance dialog, find your old drive's root image folder, select it, and then use the Change Binding command. Choose to remap to the same root folder on your new drive. You can find more information here:
