if there is, repeat the process but hold down the "Option" key when you drag the folder to the external.
This ensures that the file is copied and not moved
REcently i transferred some 'Events' from the iphoto '08 library to an external hard drive. I got directions to do this from another mac-help site.
I did the following:
1. connect external hard drive to MBP
2. GO to User>Pictures>iPhoto Library, Right Click, select 'SHow Package COntents>Originals, select 2010>Event TG
3. THen I dragged the event TG to the connected External Hard drive.
After disconnecting the Ext.Hard drive, I opened iPhoto and directly went to event TG. It showed all thumbnails but when I click on one photo...a 'Black Exclamation mark' comes up instead of the pic.
Did I do something wrong while transferring? How can I transfer pics as a back up to an external hard drive while still retaining them on my MBP?
I did look up for similar topics on this forum but cudnt find the solution, hence this thread.
