    ya same for me. everything in the iphoto folder but my checkbox for copy to library is unchecked, and was before I started importing and still is.
    wth

    and how do you bring back file form the trash when you don't know where they were before? in windows would just restore anything similar in osx?

    my pictures folder on my external is 11gig and my iphoto folder is 3.**gb
    what's happening
