Over time, I have inadvertently created duplicates.
I have two deduplication tools, Duplicate Annihilator and Tidy Up!, both of which don't actually delete the images from an Aperture library, they just flag them with a keyword, and then it is intended that the user select based on that keyword, and invoke the "Delete Master and All Versions" function.
Here is my concern about this approach. Let's say I do have a set of duplicates, and I have modified versions of one of an identical master pair. The software above may choose the unmodified or the modified to flag as a master, and if I delete that one, my versioning is destroyed. Even worse, if in my insanity I have made modifications to more than one duplicate, so I have versions all over the place. Then I'm guaranteed to destroy something I may want in my zeal to reduce the library size.
Has anybody had this issue and worked out a solution?
