The drive containing my comic files is nearly full. Is there any way to move some comic files to another hard drive (for instance files older than x years, or series that are complete) and still have them indexed in the database?

If not, is there an easy way to archive specific files to another location and have a new database created for just those files? I don't want to just export them and delete them from the database as I don't want to lose the Metadata for them.

Any other workable solutions for a full hard drive (other than getting a bigger drive that is)?

You could use a combination of adding an extra library location in preferences. Then with the library organizer plugin set your base folder as the new location and create a rule to not move anything from the existing folder.

There's probably a more eloquant way to do it but that's the best I can think of based on how I use ComicRack.

I tried that but kept getting a script error. Didn't think about needing to add the rule to the organizer. I'll give that a try.

You could convert everything to WEBP? The file size will be reduced by 50-60% and since you use ComicRack you shouldn't encounter the problem of the format not being supported. I've done a few experiments and can't really detect a difference between WEBP and JPG, so I'm about to convert my whole library.
