When you are selecting the images to relocate do you have any filter applied like "5 star only"? I have found that I need to have the "show all" rating selected otherwise some are left behind.iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2010 5:23 PM (in response to Kevin Weatherly)This would only be an issue when selecting individual photos in a project: you can't select what you can't see. But my problem is with the "relocate masters for project", which should relocate the complete project in one go, but does not (always).

I've tried three times, and I can't replicate this. Of course, that doesn't mean that it's not happening just that it hasn't happened in my tests.
Have you seen this going the other direction- when consolidating masters? Or, when relocating already referenced masters?
I've seen other posts about the multiplying album thing, but I haven't seen that either. I wonder it there's a correlation between these two issues.
Have you tried any maintenance with Disk Utility or any defrag techniques? (Shots in the dark, I know)

Currently Being ModeratedJul 19, 2010 12:00 PM (in response to DLScreative)Somehow it will never happen when just relocating one project, in either direction.
When working on a large project I always start out with managed masters. When finished I will clean up the project structure, and relocate all masters to a different disk. Since it is not possible to relocate a blue folder I will select all projects and push "relocate masters for project". The problem always occurs during these mass evacuations. Last time 110 masters out of a total of 1300 were left behind. There was absolutely no pattern I could see in those 110. After selecting all 110 and calling "relocate master" they all went where they were supposed to go without complaining; so it is not a permission problem.
The album duplication problem is mostly after a library repair or rebuild, which I always do after a kernel panic or forced quit of Aperture. This may seem excessive but Aperture has thrown a "database corruption error" at me several times before after such an event, so I am getting careful.
The frightening thing is that these duplicates are not always that: they share the name but not the content. Some seem earlier versions. I have more than once deleted the wrong one!
