My wife just lost her entire iphoto database with no warning ... poof, gone! She has a G4 tower with OS10, purchased 6 months ago. Can someone tell me what happened? Can I somehow retrieve the photos? How can this be prevented in future? <br><br>She's lost some great photos and is very upset .. solving this problem will make me her hero. Help!<br><br>JM<br><br> <br><br>
Have you done a search for the actual photos? Sometimes iPhoto's database gets corrupted and appears to be empty, but in fact the photos are still on the hard drive.<br><br>Check in your Pictures folder, or wherever else you may have stored them.<br><br><br>Visit My Web Site!
