I'm Lindie, and I’m a moderator for this topic. I sent your requested professional a message to follow up with you here, when they are back online.
If I can help further, please let me know. Thank you for your continued patience.
Thanks for your response. The original photos and any duplicated, edited ones that I made within the events are there. Unfortunately, after selecting the best photos, I edited the rest of them within the album.
I went to Pictures and tried to make a copy, which is loading now...
Okay I have a copy of the library now. Unfortunately, nothing happens when I open iPhoto while holding Command + Option...Also, once I figure out how to do this repair, what does it entail? Am I risking anything major, aside from losing the photos, which I now have a copy of, I mean.
Unfortunately, this did not restore the missing photos :/ thank you for your time...
Yes, I tried them all in the end, just to see if any of them worked. Hopefully doing that at least will prevent future problems!
I appreciate that, thank you.
