[Digikam-users] Database migration

If I use "Database Migration" to move my Digikam (1.4) database from a
small primary hard disk to one of my large secondary backup data disks,
will the process move my albums (the folders and the photos they
contain) or should I move the folders and their photos to the target
destination before running "migration"?

I can't tell if "migration" simply redirects Digikam to look elsewhere
for the albums and transfers the captions, tags, etc. there, without
actually moving or copying photographs. Google turned up a thread in
which the original poster found no photographs. That suggests they
should have been moved or copied first.
