    Recently, my iPhoto library was getting too big for my laptop. So, I bought an internal drive, an enclosure, and backed up my files onto it. However, it failed to notice my pictures were there. So in an attempt to get it to work, I tried dragging the library into iphoto. Then, it Transferred all my files to my computer. How can I get it so can see my old pictures again?

    Try renaming the original. Then open iPhoto and I believe it'll ask where your photos are. Then point it to your new drive. Then you can trash the library on your old disk. It didn't recognize your new disk because it's still linked to the existing library.
