Currently Being ModeratedApr 11, 2010 1:12 AM (in response to MacZwik)This has also happened to me but <i as not so lucky having the masters outside of Aperture so I lost a couple of 100 images. Could recover the previous but these are set to fairly low resolution.
It is easy to check. When you know you have not used Aperture since the last backup then enter time machine and locate your Aperture library. You are now on what is on your hard disk and you see the current size of your Aperture library. Now move to the last back-up before Now. Since you have not used Aperture in the meantime the library in TM should be a backup of what you note were on your local disk in the moment before. Do they match up?
It would be good if we had many that checked to see if OP and I are the only unlucky or if it is a general bug.MBP late 2008, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Aperture 3
Currently Being ModeratedApr 11, 2010 1:52 AM (in response to Jonas Nygren)When I check aperture now it is 11,4 GB when I make a time machine backup know it is only 5... I don't know how this is possible, but this is Why I lost all my thumbnails and many photo's were gone from aperture.
I don't know how I can get the full 11 gb's to time machineiMac 21,5" 1 TB + Macbook pro 15", Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 11, 2010 8:40 AM (in response to MacZwik)No one is having the same issue or knows why time machine does not backup everything where the aperture library consists of?iMac 21,5" 1 TB + Macbook pro 15", Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMay 3, 2010 12:41 PM (in response to MacZwik)Time Machine + Aperture seems to be buggy. It seems that it occasionally fails to backup some masters. I just checked my backups; xxx.aplibrary/Masters contains 19594 regular files on my hard disk, and only 13878 regular files in my Time Machine backup.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 5, 2010 3:07 PM (in response to suo)By the way, today (after some rebooting of my Mac) Time Machine eventually decided to fix the situation.
Time Machine wrote the following messages to the system log: "Event store UUIDs don't match for volume: Macintosh HD", "Node requires deep traversal:/ reason:must scan subdirs|new event db|".
Then, as the messages suggest, it did a "slow backup", scanning the entire volume, and all of sudden it found > 10 gigabytes of changes. After it finished, I checked the backup and all Aperture master files are now there.
Oh well. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Just remember to have another set of backups, preferably created without using Time Machine...
Currently Being ModeratedMay 13, 2010 12:11 PM (in response to suo)Thanks for your comment. How do you do a slow backup? I can't find that option in time machine, but I really want to try it.
I have edited 200 RAW files. My time machine did not change anything in the aperture library. So if I lose my aperture library now and I want to put it back. I have to edit all the RAW files again.....
What do you do with your edited RAW files in aperture? In case you should lose it. Everything was for nothing. So how do you save or backup your edited masters of RAW?iMac 21,5" 1 TB + Macbook pro 15", Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 23, 2011 1:29 AM (in response to MacZwik)It isn't possibile to create the whole library in a time machine backup. When you put it back your aperture library is broken and you can start over. Just make a Vault and it works
