What has Aperture done to my files?

    So I imported my entire library of my compact digital camera into Aperture. It was only after that I deleted the library from my external harddrive that I realised that within that library, amongst those images were some video files that I had taken with my camera.

    Now I have back-ups of those video files at home (a 12-hour international flight away), but for now, what has Aperture done to those video files? Does it just not import them? (Which is what I would expect, seeing how it is for still images), but might it have imported them anyway?

    Is there anyway I can get those files back? It's not important, but I'd like to have them. And I'm not going back home to where those backups are for another 7 months.

    Any ideas?

    I wish that Time Machine was on these computers already...

    I believe it just doesn't import them... iPhoto would have, but Aperture doesn't support video. It just ignores all non-image files in whatever folders full of images you import.
