Recently I accidently deleted the folder that contained most of my library (I didn't think they were refenced, I assumed they were all in my library file, but unfortunately this was not true) and this is causing me a major problem. My first step was to run Stellar Phoenix Disk Recovery, which was doing well until it broke my second external drive that they were being copied onto. I then scanned it again and put them onto a ExFat volume. However there are now issues with this volume, and the folders are not showing up in finder or Aperture. I can see the files in terminal and at present am trying to copy them over via rsync. They are mostly corrupted so that is not an option. Therefore I need advice regarding the following: As a last resort, I need to merge the previews into the masters, as otherwise I will no longer have any copy of the images files. How would I do this by means of applescript please? I've pretty much lost all of my images from my life, so would really appreciate some help here.

If anyone could guide me to whether such a script exists, or how I could make one, or even write a bit of it for me I would be very much grateful Thanks!
