    Photos on external drive. Is it quicker for Photoshop?

    I have three external drives with Photos on one and backed up on another. The third has Carbon Copy Cloner which backs up the whole system as directed plus Time Machine.

    I have a new external 5TB USB3 drive and was told best practice is to store all photos on an external drive and import originals or smart previews into Lightroom or Photoshop for editing from there.
