It should be completed by now. Once they are copied, delete the Photos Library from Pictures folder. Empty Trash. Then copy the big merged library from TC to your Pictures folder.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm now copying big merged from TC to external. It says about 2 hours left.
After that I'll copy big merged from TC to pics folder.
I'll not delete the merged libraries but copy also them from TC to external.
Should this be the final setup:
* Let all libs stay on TC and let be there until space in TC is needed sometime in future? (I'd say yes)
* Have all libs definitely on external. (I'd say yes)
* Run Photos only with big merged and see that it's the only lib in use (Is this ensured by always opening first the library from Finder?)

run dedupl of big merged?
Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.

You may need to delete the big old library from Pictures (internal hd) folder, so you will get the space to copy the new big merged library from TC

Let all libs stay on TC and let be there until space in TC is needed sometime in future? (I'd say yes) - Yes

Have all libs definitely on external. (I'd say yes) - Yes

Run Photos only with big merged and see that it's the only lib in use (Is this ensured by always opening first the library from Finder?)

After copying the big library from TC to Pictures folder (of Internal HD), hold down Option key open Photos. Select Choose Library and select the big merged library from the internal hd > Pictures folder.

Once it loaded the library, disconnect or eject the TC drive and also the external drive. Then open Photos. If it opens the library, then you can run the dedup on it.
