I agree, I don't believe the keywords are embedded in the actual files nor do I believe they should be...nothing else is. But, I could be wrong.

You might nose around here: and see what you find out.

Her book is very worth the money, in my opinion.

And no, you don't want to keyword twice. You could ask me how I know that. Or you could just believe me.

I don't disagree with you that maybe keywords should be, but I thought nothing you did in lightroom changed the original image so that it was totally non destructive.  That would mean everything goes into their side car files and hence my concern.

Its likely though that I am totally off base, but then again this is one thing I don't want to do twice.

I assume the keywords are embedded in each image file, not in some
remote database that Lightroom creates. If they're not, they sure
ought to be.

If they are, then LR will just reconstruct the keyword display when
you point it at the new drive.
