Updating vault aperture

Please note that these steps aren't exhaustive and are not for any specific issue.

These are fundamental and basic steps for getting Aperture into good working order, and are the steps most often suggested by Apple Care Technical Support.

If you convert a Vault to a Library, I don’t think you can safely go back to a Vault , so how does this help with selective recovery — i.e., not having to recover the entire Aperture Library just to get to one project?

If you duplicate the Vault, then change the extension to make it a Library, you can just open that new Library and drag out the project(s) you need, if that’s all you’re after. But there’s the time-consuming duplicate process still to contend with. If you have sufficient drive space (and let’s face it, drives are cheap as dirt these days), why not have multiple Vaults going?

The Vault is Aperture’s own built-in backup system.

These updates may not necessarily include all existing software features or new features that Apple releases for newer models of Apple-branded computers and may, at Apple’s discretion, be provided with or without charge.&New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line;&New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; &New Line; Information about products not manufactured by Apple, or independent websites not controlled or tested by Apple, is provided without recommendation or endorsement.

Have two or more identical Vaults side-by-side (or on different drives), so when the moment strikes that you need to recover a single project, just change the Vault extension to the Library extension on one of your Vaults, and you’re back up and running in seconds.

Sure it’ll take longer to update multiple Vaults than a single one, but that’s generally something you kick off before walking away from your desk for the night, right?

This can be in addition to any other backup system you may have, such as Time Machine or a cloud backup system like Backblaze.
