OK I did that. Still no pics.
The Library is 47GB.
What ever bacame of the conversion that is supposedly
needed to use the library with '11? This step didn't present -
or does rebuilding take care of that?
The package shows no contents in Masters.
I think I noticed the origina '09 library doesn't contain a "Masters" folder,
it looks like this:
It appeared that we've reached a stalemate here so I reverted to
iPhoto '09 (ver. 8.1.2), applied two updates from Software Update
and was able to get my pics back.
As the KB article ***** http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4431 *****
gives instructions I should have read before upgrading, it doesn't
discuss what to do if the library conversion hangs - only what to
do if the application quits unexpectedly during the conversion.
My experience was the former and my only option was to force
quit, which says do not do. As I see no way to safely upgrade
to '11 w/o risking another damaging force quit I will apply for a
refund from the Store. Thanks for the help. Tom
