Hello. I have been using Aperture 2 for about 2 years now and I love its ease and organization. I am currently using a 2008 mac pro 2.8ghz 8 core model with 4gb of ram and the standard internal 320gb hard drive. I have 2 fw800 external 1tb hard drives (one is a graid, the other is seagate that i got as gift recently). I stupidly and unknowingly set by write disk for aperture on my internal and now I barely have 16gb left which is really slowing down my processing. Is there a way I can transfer my library to my external so I can free up space on my internal. Thanks.

Yes, if you're using it in library mode, just move the library to another drive. After launching Aperture you can direct it to the new library in the Preferences.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Sorry, I should have said "managed" library (where all files are kept in a single database) vs. "referenced" library, where the files can reside anywhere and Aperture just keeps track of their locations. I use managed.
