Situation – I have a 750 Gb External HD(LaCie) on which I had a Library, one that I still have to go into for client work. Last week when I went to open the Library I got the following message: MAC OSX CAN'T REPAIR THE DISK “APERTURE LIBRARY” YOU CAN STILL OPEN OR COPY FILES ON THE DISK BUT YOU CAN'T SAVE CHANGES TO FILES ON THE DISK. BACK UP THE DISK AND REFORMAT IT AS SOON AS YOU CAN.
I got another message as well when I tried to access the Library, that being: APERTURE CANOT ACCESS THIS LIBRARY. MAKE SURE IT'S FILE PERMISSIONS ARE SET CORRECTLY.
Anyway, I copied the Library in question to a folder on another 2TB external HD and then erased and reformatted the 750 Gb HD. After doing so I verified the disk and all seems good according to Disk Utility. So now I'm not certain how to get the Library back on the 750 Gb HD so Aperture will recognize it and it will function as it had been prior to the corruption.
Can I simply drag the folder back into the 750 Gb Hd OR do I have to import the folder through Aperture with a destination to that 750 GB HD or is that something that should be done through or via the Vault? The copy to the 2 TB HD was about a 22 hour procedure. Thanks!
