I am having trouble getting my Aperture file size under control as it seems like many others are in other posts.  I have take the actions recommended in other threads.  I have used reference files on an external hard drive and also reduced the size of my previews using "half size" in preferences.  When I use finder and view package contents on my library file I see folders called Masters, Original, Modified and Previews.   Even with the external harddrive disconnected I see large files in the Master and Originals.  I see the small files in Previews.   I would have expected the data in Masters, Originals and Modified to be stored on the external hard drive to save the space.  Am I doing something wrong?  Is there some other action I need to take to "recover" the space?

 

Thanks for any insight you can offer.
