How to Repair Photo Library and Recover Photos on Mac

My photo library was stored on a Mac. It is about 64 GB in size. A few months ago, the hard disk developed a condition that prevented the photo library from opening. I've tried to access the photo library on the new hard drive, but the first message that shows is 'The Photos Library' has inconsistencies that must be fixed.' I click 'repair,' and then the following messages appear. How can I tell whether the file in my photo library is corrupt?

Your data will always be more important than your apps and hardware. After emptying the iPhoto Library on your Mac, recovering lost pictures should be your first action, and avoiding trash restoration is the best course of action.

According to the Apple support community, the chances of recovering images from the Trash are often quite slim when you delete the iPhoto Library from a Mac. You can use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac to recover your Mac's lost or corrupted iPhoto Library and its images.

Step 1. Click 'Search for missing files' while your mouse is over the system drive where your Photos Library is located in EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac.

Step 2. After the scan is complete, select 'Photos' from the 'Path' menu. Your lost pictures will be listed here.

Step 3. To save the photographs to a different secure area on your Mac, double-click the image to preview it, choose the appropriate one, and click 'Recover.'

You've recovered the deleted iPhoto Library after the restoration. It would be best if you also imported the repaired iPhoto Library into the Mac's iPhoto Library folder to view your restored photos:

Open iPhoto and select File - 'Switch to Library' Click 'OK' after selecting the restored iPhoto Library.

You can see and reuse your photos once more there. After completing the below photo recovery technique, you should immediately begin utilizing Time Machine and backing up important files to prevent accidental data loss.

Use this technique if you have Time Machine backups of the deleted photos! Your photographs, pictures, and photos are all secure. And to recover the deleted pictures, just adhere to the instructions below.

  • Attach the Time Machine backup drive to your Mac, then select 'Time Machine' from the Status menu. You can alternatively select 'Finder' and then 'Time Machine' to launch the program.
  • Scroll through the Timeline in the lower-right corner of your Mac's screen to discover the day that you last made a backup of your images.

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
