It sounds like one or more overfilled hard drives, a common problem when folks use Managed Masters. Once you switch to the more appropriate *Referenced-Masters Library* Aperture will help you keep from overfilling the Library drive. Reconfigure all of your image Masters to have a *Referenced-Masters Library* on the internal drive with the Masters referenced on other drives via FW800 or (preferably) eSATA.
Hard drives should be less than 70% full. That is important for speed and stability. Don't try to do anything until <70% full is achieved for all drives. To get to less than 70% full move data off of the Library drives to other drives.
The Aperture Library should live on an internal drive for best speed.
Note that Vaults back up the Library but a Referenced-Masters Library does not have the Masters in it, so Masters must be separately backed up. Also routinely create Vaults to back up the Library.
