Currently Being ModeratedSep 4, 2009 6:01 AM (in response to Eugene L. Pienaar)I didn't keep the exact figure, but I think I got about 200-300 GB. Sadly, it seemed to be at the expense of a sparse disk image that I had created earlier this year to house my 200-300 GB Aperture library.
I'm not sure why this happened, but it's a huge blow that will mean hours of work restoring everything. Anybody know why that might have happened? Maybe the sparse image is still there somewhere, but I can't find it.Mac Pro 2 x 2.26 Quad core, Mac OS X (10.6)
