    You are going to have to provide much more information then that; disk configuration, available disk space, RAM, graphics card and any other software installed such as AV software or maintenance software.

    I also have to tell tou that since i install os lion i had so many problem when my computer goer to sleep my hard drives disappear and all sorts of other problem with my large aperture  library on another hard drive. whisch i tried to rebuild and i could not. So i decided to go to the masters and copy them and reimport the files in another library on that new 6tb lacie drive. And i have the same problems with aperture

    at the opening aperture often tell me that the library has to be repaired

    Aperture 3.4.3 will give this message, when you used "Force Quit" to quit Aperture. Force quitting is dangerous; it does not give the program the chance to save important data and to close open files properly. So your Aperture library may be left in an inconsistent state and may need repairing. That is the reason that Aperture now will not let you continue before you fix the library.

     

    Why did you have to force quit Aperture?

     

     

    when my computer goer to sleep my hard drives disappear and all sorts of other problem with my large aperture

    Are your hard drives directly connected or on a network volume?

    i did not said that i had to quit i sais that while my computer goes to sleep sometimes my external hard drive which are directly connected to my imac 27 inches with 16 gig of ram dissapear. Which cause a problem if aperture was running.

    Otherwise it happens that while i start aperture a window will open and says that i have to repair the library

     

    it sort of strange because it happen after i install os lion. i had all sort of problem after installing os lion

     

    I have recuperate my library with a vault on a 6 tb brand new in september and i can't get access to this new library i am now recuperate all the images by making copies of the master files . What a mess

    O.k., if your external hard drive is suddenly offline, while Aperture is still using it, and could not complete all database transactions,  the Aperture will insist on repairing the library, just like after Force-quitting; this is necessary, for the Aperture library may be inconsistent, if Aperture could not finish writing its data.

     

    This is not an Aperture problem, it is a problem of your external drive. It should not dismount while a program is using it. If it happens, while Aperture is running and the computer is going to sleep, change the energy saver settiings and don't let your mac go to sleep, while you need Aperture running.  Ask in one of the technology forums, why your disk continuously will dismount.

     

    I have recuperate my library with a vault on a 6 tb brand new in september and i can't get access to this new library i am now recuperate all the images by making copies of the master files . What a mess

    Is that the same harddrive, or a second library? Can't you get access to your library after letting the repair go through?

    I have two 6tb one that i can see , copy from but i could no longer use the aperture library. So i am extracting all the raw files from it. It got corrupted , i do not know how but i guess is because it will disconnect when my computer went to sleep.

     

    So now i am re buiding another library on another 6tb and it is on that new one that i got some message of repar the library,

     

    I do think that aperture was not able as you say to complete the database.

     

    I change the energysaver setting ans i also disconnect all the hard drive and the alimentation of the Imac in orther to repear my problem .since that time i had no other message, so i guess it's going to be correct.

     

    There is two minor problem that are appearing sometimes some of my images are square black with a Yellow triangle and a message of aperture does not recognise that type of file and i have to reimport the same image in order to get it right.

     

     

    And i had some 1969 date of creation on many images so i do not know if this could be part of the problem of an inconsisten data base
