| p.1 #1 · Copying hard drives and libraries |
Ok, so i was using my system drive to store all my current projects, both photos and Aperture Libraries....decided that was putting un-necessary wear on my drive, so i moved the library to an external drive (1TB, 5400rpm western digital drive, USB 2.0), and then went though aperture project by project and did "relocate masters for project" which pulled the photos for each project off my system drive and transferred them to the directory of my choice, which was now on the external drive...so that way aperture still knew where to locate the master files....
so obviously i wasn't going to keep that WD drive forever, so i picked up 2 Glyph 1TB 7200 rpm FW800 drives....so i'll use one as a work drive, and then backup everything to the other every night using Carbon Copy Cloner....
so, HERE'S MY PROB, i cloned my WD external drive to Glyph drive #1, same name and everything...but now when i go to aperture to open the library off the Glyph drive, it doesn't know where the masters are....So i'll have to go through project by project again and do "relocate masters for project" so that it knows where they are...
if the drives are named the same, and file structures are the same, why doesn't aperture think it's the exact same drive??
