Hi All,


I have been trying to relocate my Aperture 3 original photo and vido files from my Macbook Pro's original SSD to a newly mounted internal secondary SSD due to storage limit problems. Unfortunately, it is taking forever. Each image is taking about a minute and every few hours the computer hangs and I have to reboot and start over. Any advice?

Aperture 3, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Strongly suggest repairing your database (=Library), making a new backup, and confirming that your Library works and that all links are in place, before moving forward.


    Directions for database repair are on this Apple support page.


    You should repair your Library after _every_ force-quitting of Aperture.  (Databases today are self-maintaining.  They _really_ don't like having the power pulled.)


    Then proceed.


    Don't have any idea why the SSD to SSD xfer runs slow.  I would try to let it run overnight and see if it completes.  You might try a straight Finder file xfer to see what throughput you get.


    Keep us posted.



    You have TWO SSD's in a MBP?  How?
