OK, so I've been dealing with multiple issues since upgrade to 3.3.2, mostly related to old iPhoto smart albums that somehow messed up with the new sort by date functionality.
Anyway, I solved that, but now I am even more confused!
Import of my OLD Aperture library into a NEW empty library finally worked without crashing! This after deleting all smart albums that were previously created in iPhoto.
However, the new Aperture library after import is only showing 7 Albums. While my primary OLD Aperture library has at least another 25 albums in it (smart albums, books, regular albums).
Upon closer inspection, I notice that all of these MISSING albums were under a folder called Library Albums.
Does that make any difference? Why would Aperture have completed import into new library without any errors but not made a complete match?
Again, all photos appear to be in library. But albums are missing.
Any way to check and compare OLD library with NEW library other than just a spot check as I've done in inspector?
Also, OLD library 76.38 GB on disk.
NEW library just 58.22 GB on disk?!
Thanks for help experts!
