I have a mid 2009 unibody macbook pro running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard and Aperture 3.2.4. Everything has been fine until I decided to upgrade my internal 500GB drive to a Western Digital 1TB as I have no space left. I had read a couple of forums of people that had done exactly that without a hitch so I gave it a go.
Everything went fine until I did the system restore using Time Machine and that's when errors popped up followed by a 'system restore failed'? I must have tried the process 3 or 4 times which included 'zero all data' first using disc utility and still no joy. However a clean system install worked fine so my only conclusion is that somewhere within my time machine back up is a corruption that's preventing my restore - brilliant! :O(
On to plan B then which consists of me having to re-install all my software. Then to plug in my old 500GB internal drive which has all my system/apps/files etc (as it was when I swapped it out) then drag over and swap over my 76GB aperture library. FYI my 500GB hard drive now sits in it's own external case and is plugged in via USB.
This seems to have worked fine but when I open up Aperture all of my Facebook albums in the left hand column are missing! I am yet to log into Facebook through Aperture for the first time (since my system restore) and it may be that when I do all my Facebook albums may reappear within Aperture. However when I first starting using Aperture I didn't know that FB albums are dynamically linked. I thought that once uploaded to FB one could delete the FB album within aperture. I found this out to my peril after friends asked me 'where have all your photos gone' aaaggghhhhh!!!
Having uploaded several albums via Aperture to facebook and probably a couple of thousand images my main concern is when I do log into facebook for the first time the dynamic link will see no albums within my Aperture library and hence delete all my albums and images on facebook which would be a massive disaster!
Can anyone advise/help on this matter?
