Hello All,

I installed Snow Leopard two nights ago.  The first try with the installation didn't work because I had my external hard drives connected, stupid.  The second try worked great, except reconnecting the hard drives after the install.  The problem was that I had the drives in a RAID 1 set.  30 Seconds after connecting one of the hard drives, I would get a kernel panic.  After trying to find a solution for an hour or so, I decided to delete the array.  I connected the drive and quickly ,before the OS could panic, deleted the array.  After I deleted the array, the drive would not mount; I had to manually mount the drive in Terminal.  I could not even repair the drive or verify the drive in Disk Utility, the options were grayed out.  After I mounted the drive, I backed up the data on the drive and tried to erase the drive.  I received an error that would not let me erase the drive.   After getting that error I restarted.  When it loaded up, the drive was already mounted; which it had not done previously.  When I tried to open one of the folders, it gave me an error that one of the sectors was bad and indicated that I needed to verify the drive.  I verified the drive and the OS found two sectors that needed to be repaired.  I repaired the drive and that fixed the problem (the options to verify and repair magically became available after it failed to erase the drive and I restarted).  I would hardly call that a fix for the problem, but that's how I fumbled my way through it.  Hope that helps someone.

2  Software Discussions / Aperture / Re: Converting from managed to referenced images in Aperture 2 on: September 07, 2009, 02:00:17 PM

I was just looking for information on how to do this exact same thing, except for the particular image ingestion script.  I had just uploaded my first 345 images just to play around with the program (didn't feel like waiting for the 100GB+ to import).  After the initial import I started adjusting my images, and before I knew it I had finished all 345 images.  This became a problem as I didn't want to maintain a separate Aperture-Managed library, but instead decided on a Referenced library.  I had originally imported previously adjust images in iPhoto which lead me to believe that relocating masters wouldn't work.  I backed up all my data and lo and behold it worked!  I had converted from a Managed library to a linked library while maintaining all the adjustments.  These images where .jpeg so I'm not sure if the result would have been different had I used a RAW format so keep that in mind.  I was unsure about the relocating masters because of the wording in the description.  It made it sound like the program would physically export the imported images into a selected location on a particular drive, and not Reference the image to an existing location.   

1) Select all the images you would like to convert from Managed to Referenced

2) File
      -Relocate Master

3) Select folder location of the original images

4) Click on "Relocate Masters" at the bottom of the window

That simple.  All the images that were physically in the Aperture-Managed library will be deleted, only Referenced files will remain.  Just don't move the Masters! If you do, you will have to Relocate Masters again.
To confirm, check the size of the the Aperture library before Relocating.  After Relocating Masters the Aperture library will be much smaller. i.e (1.71GB to 422.6MB)

Hope that helps,
