I just bought a new 1TB hard drive for my laptop and would like to install Windows 8 on it. On the existing 250 MB hard drive, I now have thousands of photos organized by tags in Windows Photo Gallery which came with the Vista operating system. I know I won't lose any photos when I make the change because I have everything backed up. But the photo files are contained in about a hundred separate folders and my fear is that I will have to spend an enormous amount of time organizing them again for the new system.
Should I not be concerned about this? Will Windows 8 quickly organize them again by tags? Or is there something I should do before I make the hard drive/operating system change to ensure a smoother transition?
