New external hard drive.

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, but i recently ordered a 8TB external drive that I want to transfer all my LaunchBox, Rom sets, Emulatoes, etc. Once I do that will I have to re-import all my games or will it recognize the new drive in LaunchBox? My mini pc is a mess and I've got 4 different drives with games all over the place and I want to organize and streamline everything.

After you run through your organization of your files, go into LaunchBox, select all games on a platform by platform basis and run Tools > File Management > Change ROMs Folder Path for Selected Games for each platform that needs it.

Wow 8tb how much will all the games take up when transfers over?  hope that's going  to leave you a lot of space .... I'm just starting a new build without going out to get a new drive I've got a max of 2tb 

It depends what you want. For me I'm more of a collector and with artwork and games I'm close to 40TB. Plus another 40TB for backup.
