    Another great suggestion! In a nutshell, we will develop the transfer in such a way that all you would have to do is copy the Monument folder from the current drive to the new drive.

    All of your saved albums, tags, people, etc. will not be lost in the app.

    Thank-you!

    As part of that feature, would you be continuously copying that information automatically to the "backup" drive on USB port 2? If so, then if the primary fails, I should just be able to swap the backup drive into USB slot 1 and ask it to recognize it as the new primary. In this scenario, I would not have to copy any files.

    This would be a easier way for the user to increase the space (eg. if primary was, say 1TB, then by installing a 3TB drive in USB 2 as backup, all info would be copied to the 3TB and when complete, I'd be able to move the 3TB drive to USB 1 and have it become the primary). If that works, then the user would never have to copy files.

    Yup! That's also correct. You would be able to change your backup drive to the primary drive without losing any information in the app.
