    Are they even gone from Macintosh HD / Users / YOU / Pictures / Aperture?

    Have you looked in the Trash?

    What Aperture and Mac OS X version and what Mac do you have?

    Does your library use managed files or referenced files. If referenced, did they get moved? Also, locate and double-click on the library file itself to launch Aperture instead of running Aperture directly. Maybe it lost the preference that indicates the library location. Launching the library directly should fix that.

    i fixed it by holding alt cmd at the start up screen

    mods please delete sorry for wasting time and space but thanks for the help
