Moving Managed Aperture Library Help

Hi All,

I currently have my managed Aperture library stored on my Macbook Pro and backed up to an external hard drive using Time Machine.

I'm receiving a new Mac Mini this weekend and would like to move my Aperture library to the Mini.

I'm not sure it's as easy as I think it is but is all I have to do is drag the Aperture file located in my Time Machine backup onto the Mini and everything will copy over?

Also, I was thinking about getting an external hard drive and switching to a referenced library. If I did this before I got my Mini, I was thinking I would relocate the orgiinals to the external hard drive and then do the same thing as in option 1, just drag the Aperture library (now referenced) onto my Mini and everything would be seamless.

Am I missing anything? Or are there other files I need to copy over besides the Aperture library to make this work?

Thanks in advance!
