I upgraded to OS X El Capitan via a clean install. While erasing the disk, I renamed it from
Macintosh HD to
Hard Drive. After installation, I copied all data from an external hard drive back into its original location. I checked if everything was working, including if all images, faces, locations, etc. showed up in Aperture. Nothing seemed amiss.
Only now, days later when trying to edit a few older images did I notice that at the top of the
Adjustments tab of the inspector it said
Image Offline for every single file in my library.
I immediately tried
Show in Finder on some random image which returned
The file 'filename'.jpg could not be found because the volume on which it resides is currently offline.
Volume: Macintosh HD
I did a grep search for
Macintosh HD within the Aperture library database (
Aperture Library.aplibrary) using
grep -nr "Macintosh HD" . to see if the problem was fixable by replacing
Macintosh HD with
Hard Drive in a couple of places. It searched for a few seconds before turning up two or three matches. A few seconds more, and it went into a frenzy, basically spitting out the path to every single image in my library.
After that, I dropped everything and fled here so as not to damage anything further. Any ideas on how to fix this without doing another clean install to change the volume name back to its original? Help will be greatly appreciated.
