I had to move all of my images to a new drive (disk issues).  This was the images only.  The database is still in it's original location.
Is it somehow possible to point the database to the new location or must I rebuild all the thumbnails?

- Have you kept the folder structure the same as on the original drive? (that's required)

- Does the new drive have exactly the same volume label that the old drive had? (if not, change it through the drive properties in Explorer - do NOT use TP to do this).

With both these conditions met, TP should recognize the images as before without having to re-make the thumbnails.

Couldn't make it work - bit the bullet and rebuilt 400,000+ images but took the opportunity to switch to sqlite DB
