    Dear Léonie and Frank,

     

    Thanks a lot for your help!

     

    I restored my Aperture 2 library from Time machine (although the first attempt did not work, second did with different date) and then upgraded to Aperture 3.

     

    It seems everything is working now, however, I have only made some limited tests, but it seems to work, not perfectly, some distorted shows in the browser, but photos okay in viewer and workable.

     

    My panic is over (hopefully). Thanks for taken your time!

    Sounds good, hopefully the worst is behind you.

     

    One thing if you kept the original library, the one you were having troubles with, you could try opening that in3 just to see if it is able to. You might not have to loose your last weeks work.

     

     

    regards

    Now, that is very good news! 

     

    For the distorted images in the browser you could try to use the command "Photos > Generate thumbnails".

    I ended up having to restore from a fairly new backup, which contained the latest photos, and they seem as well to be workable and fine in Aperture 3.

     

    It was a bit annoying that the first Time machine version of the Aperture 2 library could not be used (stalled after copying for 1 hour with the message could not be read or written), but that is a different discussion. Aperture works now in version 3.5.1 and I have all my photos!

     

    And I will try to "Generate thumbnails" to avoid the few distorted images in the browser.

     

    Thanks!
