I'd really appreciate your help.

I have created a new apple ID account because my old apple ID email has been breached (in a T Mobile data hack) and appears on the dark web. I'm already seeing odd emails that show me I have to move quickly to move all my photos and docs from my old apple icloud account to my new one. I'm also needing to my my old Apple emails to the new ID account.

So I duplicated my old Apple Photos library but don't know if I will be able to open it (off an external drive) once I deliver the original Apple ID/icloud account.

Hope you can help.

Thank you!
