    Hi all. Just recently upgraded to Windows 7. Was running Vista. I have both on dual boot at the moment (I always do this until all my programs are properly setup under the new OS).

    Whats the best way to migrate lightroom and its catalog over?

    Copy and paste the Lightroom folder from 'My Pictures'. Just make sure your photos are on the right drive letter.

    LR then starts up as if nothing has happened. No tedious/lengthy import or anything. Works well with iTunes too.

    ah that's nice and easy, my pictures live on my data drive and the path / location of all that hasn't changed
