| p.1 #1 · Aperture 3 - Interesting observations about libraries |
So typically i keep all my photos in one library (with 4 backups, don't worry)...i work with raw files, then discard what i don't edit....last year's library is 266 gb, the one before that is 150 gb....well recently i got an internal SSD, so i decided to make a temporary "working" library on the system drive that i import to, edit from, and then export the project as a library and merge with my other library....so that way my edits are just that much faster working off the SSD....
So, earlier today i cleaned out that "working" library, exported all the projects i was done with, deleted them from the library, and then emptied the Aperture trash....then, of course, emptied the trash can within osX....
Well, the empty library sitting on the desktop with ZERO files in it, was still 5 gb. NOTHING in the library. But still 5 gb. So created a new library on the desktop, that was completely fresh...only 7.3 mb.
So how is it that when you delete stuff out of Aperture, it still hangs on to SOMETHING that makes the libraries huge?
