I had my iPhoto library on an external hard drive called Drobo, for some reason the external drive will not mount in finder under devices, even though the drive seems healthy.
I have tried talking with Drobo support and they have suggested several steps to try, like changing cables and ports, Disk Warrior etc, none of which helped.
Is there a way to salvage and migrate the iPhoto library back to my main computer?
I followed the directions to move iphoto library to external HD and now cannot see any photos taken from 2008 on. I can see the photo number and a dotted line , but no thumbnail. When I click on a dotted line photo, I get an exclamation mark. This happens on internal drive and external. I deleted nothing. Where are the photos? if I go back in time machine to before the move, will I get everything back?
No idea - you actually need to provide details - and it would be better to start a new thread since this one is old and long
TO get help you need to provide things like what you did ("followed the diredtions" is no help - what directions and what did you do) - version of iPhotoa and of the OS
One thing to try is Back up your iPhoto library, Depress and hold the option (alt) and command keys and launch iPhoto - rebuild your iPhoto library database
