    Ok, so I did search this and it is still not exactly clear what is going on.

    I just started using the Aperture vault, and when I go to back up I get this message:

    "11328 managed files will be included in this vault

    182 referenced files will not be included, these need to be backed up separately"

    So first off, the way I understand managed files is that these are files that reside in your aperture library, and referenced files reside outside the aperture library.

    The problem I am having is that I can not located these 182 referenced images. I have set up a smart album and used a filter to sort our referenced images, but it never populates with anything...

    I also thought it might be referring to images stored on MobileMe, but I have less than 182 images on there..

    Suggestion to find these referenced images please?

    Edit: Found them. they are my photo stream images/

    I had exactly the same question earlier today... and I was scratching my head as I've always used managed files. Indeed... it is the photostream.
