When I got Aperture 2 I was new to Mac and the software itself and I decided to keep all my library with referenced images rather than having a managed library. That gave me some sort of peace of mind. Now, when I know better the software and I am more familiar with Macs I have understood that you can trust Aperture 3.4.3 to manage your library. I do everything in Mac now. Also, I have different folders and photographs scattered in my hard drive so I thought it was time to consolidate my library in my new 3TB thunderbolt hard drive.
Unfortunately, Aperture crashes every time I have tried to export all my projects as a ONE library consolidating masters and so forth.
Any one knowing a solution for this problem? My library is about 350GB which does not seem to be a lot for Aperture to handle.
I am using a 2011 macbook pro with intel i7 and 8GB in RAM

What do you think is better? Moving the library file to the new HD and then consolidate (as you pointed out) or consolidate in the old HD and move the library file after completing consolidating?
Doesn't really matter. _Start with a complete, verified, back-up of both your Library and your Referenced Originals!_
I would move the Library, confirm that it works, then consolidate. If your Originals are all in known, easily located places, use _copy_, confirm that it works, then (maybe a week later) delete them. If your Originals are _not_ in known, easily located places, use _move_.
