View Full Version : Transferring Photos

11-17-2015, 12:10 PM
I'm reinstalling my system, and having transferred my 200,000 + photos from the backup drive from which they now seem to have disappeared, there are some 2,000 that can't be imported. OK, I can deal with that. But the dreaded ball is rolling forever. Can I use force quit, or will that mean I lose everything?

Ok, that was a very confusing post. Where did you transfer the 200K photos TO, and did you COPY them or MOVE them? And what application did you use to do this transfer. Leave it running until the ball stops rolling or you stand a choice of losing everything, unless and until we know what you were doing. More details plus (Mac type, OS X version, applications, any messages, etc, etc, etc.)

How did you do the transfer? Copy or move? Move is a dangerous action and should never be used unless you have another backup. Leave things alone and wait it out.
