How long is your upgrade taking? #1

Please comment below on the average per-image time it’s taking your library to upgrade. Be as detailed as you can; for example my hardware is:

MacBook Pro 15” 2.93GHz 4GB RAM

• Original import of A2 library to an A3 library took about 3 seconds per image
• ”Processing” took 3 seconds per image (although it bizarrely seems to have skipped 10,000 images for processing; see my February 14, 2010 at 11:09 AM update here.
• ”Faces” took 6 seconds per image

iMac 2.93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4 GB

My small 271 GB library upgrade took only 3 hours but I messed up subsequently with the largest and most important one 753 GB which stalled my computer after over 36 hours of upgrading… 92% were processed but it then crashed and I had to restart.

My problem, I think is that I am using 1TB Iomega MiniMax hard drive. I think I really need to invest in a Drobo? Any advice please?

Now trying to reopen my library with Aperture 2 and will hopefully upgrade following Jonathan’s procedure. If I may retrieve it without going through the Vault long procedure.
