I want to make it easier to keep my Aperture albums organized/archived/backuped and was considering using a Linux server I have as an “archive server”. That is, I would copy the Aperture albums to/from this server using FTP (or more correctly: one of the servers disks mounted as a real disk on my laptop using ExpanDrive - which uses SSH+FTP). From there I would make the proper backups and if I need to work on an album I would copy it down to my laptop and do all the work locally.
My question is: can I copy Aperture albums like this, store them on a non-HFS+ filesystem and expect them to work correctly afterwards? Does anyone have any experience from something like this?
