In a nutshell... I'm on my 3rd iMac (2 in the last 2 months have crashed) and it has data migrated from various backups (some corrupt!), so I have a fresh iMac, with a lump of data located in various places.


Now... Opening Aperture, all my old librarys give me a message along the lines of:


Consistencies dected, please repair.


OK. No matter what I do (repair, rebuild etc), nothing seems to get rid of the message, so I decided to grab what I can and export it to a NEW library.
This works fine now (as far as I can tell).


I have 3 libraries, the next one I came to - it only displayed 10ish photos in total. The rest of the photos were APPARENT however you can't view them - just a grey outline and the photo name - as the master is offline. I presume this stems from the data being moved around everywhere?


Now, SOME images show a grey outline, however when you double click on them - you can see them!


I understand why this has happened, due to the 3 or 4 times data has been moved about etc, but is there a way to get Aperture to find the images again? Without having to go through every single photo and re-import it. I also don't want to have to do ALL the adjustments again!


I've tried reprocessing/generating previews etc, but nothing.


Please help!


Thank you
