I have a MacBookPro with a custom set up. 240 GB internal SSD and an additional internal HD of 1 TB.
Here is my setup running latest Aperture:
Library on SSD
Photos managed on SSD
Video referenced by Aperture on 1 TB drive
All worked great, but I was getting tight on space on SSD, so I Relocated Originals of all my photos to the 1 TB drive. AND THEN IT DIED ON ME! :-(
I have a very recent backup from last week of both the SSD and the 1 TB drive. Bootable backups from SuperDuper.
However, I'm confused as to how to go about cobbling back together a working library now. My confusion stems from the fact that I now have:
Aperture library on SSD looking for referenced photos and videos on a 1 TB drive that is dead.
My SSD backup has Aperture library with photos managed and videos referenced.
My 1 TB backup from last week just has the referenced videos; not the relocated originals that my current Aperture library is looking for…
To top it all off my SSD doesn't have space to just copy back the managed Aperture library file from last week's SSD back up!
Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!
