I recently purchased Aperture 3 and am trying different things in order to find the best way to use it with my existing images. One thing I have noticed as I mess about with different file operations is that Aperture seems to "miss" files from time to time.
- I import from a directory containing 1214 pictures, Aperture imports 1091 of them.
- I import from a large directory tree like /year/month/event, and Aperture skips entire directories. (it imported every month except march and september).
- I try to move files from Aperture to a new location (relocate masters). Some files are still left in their old location.
Some of this can be explained by user mistakes; I initially didn't realize that rejected files were excluded by default, for example.
I am still trying to figure out if I am doing something wrong, but I would like to know if anyone else out there has noticed this behavior and if there is an explanation for it?
