Gonna preface this with "any help is appreciated" My 6 year old macbook died on me but luckily crashplan had backed it up just before it died. I now have 80gb of data in the crashplan cloud, 60gb of which is just photos! I suspect it's because iphoto wastes so much space with thumbnails, previews, masters, and faces I tried restoring that data onto a new mac mini and it was a disaster. It duplicated all the files for some reason and ended up using about 160 gb of the harddrive along with making it run ridiculously slow (3 hours for iphoto to open). that being said I returned the mac mini and now plan on getting a macbook pro instead. I'm assuming the macmini disaster may have happened because I was running an older OS on the old macbook (snow leopard) and it was trying to restore that data onto Lion. Any ideas as to how to avoid that same disaster when I try to restore all that crashplan data onto the new macbook pro? sidenote: i'm thinkin iphoto is useless for that many photos. recommendations for photo cataloging? lightroom? aperature? just using folders/subfolders?
