Aperture: Using Time Machine to backup a library

Tips on using Time Machine with Aperture.

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

Time Machine is a good way to maintain a backup of your Aperture library.  Keep the following points in mind:

  • Mac OS X v10.5.3 Leopard or later is strongly recommended.  Earlier versions of Leopard did not provide full compatibility between Time Machine and Aperture.
  • Do not perform a restore operation while Aperture is running. You may lose data from your library if you perform a restore while Aperture is open.
