As a general housekeeping practice, I check for offline images regularly.  Today I found 100 images and videos offline. They are all  from the same project, but only part of the project is affected. 


A spotlight search reveals that the images are exactly where Aperture thinks they are supposed to be.  Not only does Aperture think they are offline but it doesn't see them at all in the reconnect dialog. 


I've repaired permissions, repaired the database and rebuilt the database.  DiskUtility gives the disk a clean bill of health, and it's properly formatted.


I've never seen this.  Have you?


Still running 3.2.4 BTW

    No.  I was hoping someone would reply.  The only issue I can remember that seemed related dealt with encrypted drive(s).

    I still have nothing to add that you haven't thought of or are planning to do, to wit: clean up everything you can and be sure to get rid of the memory card stub.  Then copy the Library to a newly-formated drive, run Repair Database, and see what you end up with.


    Is there something in 3.4.3 that keeps you from upgrading?
