    So... I have my Photos library on an external HDD because it has over 200GB and my MacBook has only 512GB internally and it would be crazy to fill half an SSD with pictures.

    Every time I want to use the app I can't just plug in the external HDD and use it, I have to restart the Mac to do it, is there a way to fix it or at least a decent reason?

    Whats the issue, does the Mac not see the drive or does Photos not recognise the library or what? What Mac? What OS?
