Hi and Welcome. My Name is Ashik and I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Have you tried rebuilding the Aperture database ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes and it partially rebuilds, but crashes regularly
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
That indicates the library file has corrupted. Do you have any backup of your Aperture library ? And what version of Mac OS X are you using ?
