    Hi, due to a recent user error I managed to import my whole hard drive into the folder structure in aperture 3. This left me with thousands of new folder entries. I've tried deleting them but doing it from the root of the directory seems to crash aperture. I've had to resort to drilling down into the directory and slowly deleting the folders one by one. At this rate I'll be done by Xmas.

    I was thinking about exporting my good projects / folders to a new catalogue and then dumping the existing one. Is this possible?

    Any suggestions as to how I might overcome this problem?

    This should get you started. Just export the folders/projects/albums that you want to keep, choose a "master" and merge them all back together.


    You could just restore from your vault or Time Machine. That would likely be much faster.
