Good morning

 

As far as I can see I have similar problem to the one of a lot of people: iPhoto librairy is big (circa 175GB)!

 

I have exported all the RAW files I used to keep within the librairy and stored them in an external drive. After they were copied I have deleted them from iPhoto and emptied the waste basket in iPhoto and did the same in for the main waste basket.

 

The problem I am facing is the following: I cannot recovert he 60 offs GB I have spared by doing that. Indeed the iPhoto librairy went down from 175GB to 110ish but when I look at the disk utility I have kept the same empty space before and after i.e. 25GB while I would have expected it to go up to 90GB after the space has been freed.

 

Any explanation or further check suggested?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Best

 

Pierre
