Use dedicated disk drives for your image library

It's better to not store your image files on your system disk. I recommend you store your photos (and usually, your Lightroom catalogs) on disk drives used only for that purpose. If you currently are storing your photos on a single internal disk, I recommend you set up new drives to use only for your imaging work.

Whenever possible it's easiest to use just one large disk for your entire image library. Fewer, larger disks are easier to manage than many small ones. A single disk also provides for easier backups. As your library grows and your disks fill to capacity, I highly recommend transferring everything to larger drives.

External usb 2.0 or FireWire (ieee 1394) dr ives provide fast read/write times and can be easily moved to another computer as needed.
