I am moving to a higher-powered PC with a clean install of Windows 10. My PhotoStructure library is on an external 8TB USB 3.0 drive.
What’s the best way to install/configure PhotoStructure on the new PC and have it find the library when I connect the external drive? Any “gotchas” to watch out for?

OK, I finally got around to moving to new hardware. I’m trying to install PhotoStructure and it found my existing library. But when I select that library with the radio button and click “Select” the selection changes to the line requesting a custom path. See screenshots.
So, I tried putting in the current library location as a custom path “L:\PhotoStructure” and it opens a file browser window. I’m afraid to move farther at this point without guidance.
Do you have time tomorrow to share screen and I can talk you through it? I’m online all day 9am-5pm PDT.
Sorry, it will have to be Monday at the earliest. I’ll try then. Thanks.
When might be a good time for you to screen share today?
We just chatted over Google Meet, and @esjones showed me what was going on.
It turns out that his screen was perfectly sized for the “Where would you like your PhotoStructure library stored?” section to just fit on the screen, and the placement of the “Select” button next to the custom library directory was positioned where the “next” button would be.
I’ve reworked the help text on the custom directory field, and added “Back”/“Next” buttons to the bottom of each card to hopefully avoid this confusion in the future:
Thanks for your time, @esjones !
