Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Aperture to back up your iPhoto library, part of Using iPhoto and Aperture Together.
In an earlier movie, I talked about using Time Machine to back up your iPhoto…Library, and it definitely has its merits.…But I have an alternative to show you also and it's because of the unified…library, we can do this.…So, we can do our work here in iPhoto.…And then, after the work session is over, I'm going to go ahead and quit iPhoto…and I'm just going to open it in Aperture and I'm going to set up a Vault for my iPhoto Library.…
So, I go down here to the Gear, Add Vault.…It gives us this message that I think is handy and that I appreciate.…We are going to call it Carpinteria.…We're going to put it on the same hard drive where I have another Vault. Click Add.…We'll go down here to Show Vaults.…There it is and the red indicates that I have both master files and metadata…that need to be backed up.…So, let's do that right now.…I click on that and the Aperture will proceed to back up my iPhoto Library.…
My red icon changes to black, so I know everything is safe and sound.…So now I can quit Aperture.…
