    How can I clean up my iPhoto libray. Sorry this is complicated BUT...
    Fot the moment I have it on an Ext HD that been partitioned into Cloned int HD//Other stuff.
    Its also on my int. HD.... BUT for the moment the only place it backs up my new photos is on the "Other stuff" Ext.HD.
    Problem is that every time I open iPhotos it takes about 5 minutes to change anything ie. from IMPORT to Modify ect. and often blocks completly. I've also noticed that my whole computer slows down when i open I/P and even when Ive Quit I/P again, it still runs real slow untill I put it to sleep or in extreame cases reboot or run an SOS Disc Utility.
    I've noticed that I have quite a few files with nothing in them but i'm scared stiff of deleting anything...'cos the last time I went into my iPhotos file Libray..everything went to sh** and it took me about 3 days to find everything again.( Thumbs, ??? Files and all sort of weird stuff)
    Maybe having it in 3 places is causing a sort of F***up loop ????
    Anway if you've understood what I've been trying to say and have any ideas they would be welcome .
