in a (German) podcast the question came up, how one could find photos that are on the hard driver (could be an external) but that Lightroom doesn’t know about. The hosts thought about a few ways to do it. On the next episode one of them told the story of how he tried it out and gained 30 TB.
Being a pretty convinced Aperture user, I thought: for us that’s easy! Just consolidate your library and see what’s left in your photos folder… Done! But since I heard that this podcast host freed 30 TB on his hard drive, I started thinking about actually doing it.
Now I don’t think, I have to explain, why the thought of consolidating my entire library makes me a bit uneasy. So my question is:
Is there a way to easily find photos in the photos folder on my hard drive, that are not referenced in Aperture? I’m thinking about photos that I might have deleted in Aperture put accidentally did not move the master to the system trash. Or photos that did not get imported when I switched from Lightroom, a few years back…
Thanks so much in advance!
