If you tried to copy the library to an external drive and it didn't work the original library will still be where it was when you started. Copying does not destroy the original.
What about the procedure of copying the library to the external didnt work?

Some points to keep in mind when copying an Aperture library to an external drive:
1. The drive should be formatted as MacOS Extended. If it is formatted for Windows (FAT32) you will have trouble.
2. If multiple users open the library on the external drive (not simultaneously of course), you will get permissions issues. If you need to do this, set the Ignore Ownership flag in the Get Info dialog for the drive.
