Question: iPhoto Library not opening from external HD

Hi - I am trying to open an older iPhoto library. When selected, "updating library" appears for over an hour with 0% complete. It is saved on a Seagate external Format Mac OS extended. I have left it on overnight and still shows 0% complete. Thank you.

macOS High Sierra v 10.13.2. MacBook Air, 2017, Processor 1.8 GHz Intel Core i5, memory 8GB 1600 MHZ DDR3

Case sensitive means that the system will consider Image.JPG and Image.jpg as two different files


Check the drive with Disk Utility and it should tell you what type it is. Or use the Get Info option on the drive and see what the Info pane says:

what is the format of the external drive - there are two different Mac OS extended formats.

Mac OS extended (journaled) or Mac OS extended (case sensitive)




Journaled is the correct one - Case Sensitive will not work



Which is it?
