  • Disclosure triangle: Click to see the hard disk that is assigned to a vault.
  • Vault Status button: Click this button to update a vault. The color of the Vault Status button indicates the state of the vault:
    • Black: The vault is up to date.
    • Yellow: All masters in the library have been backed up, but a change has occurred to at least one version (such as an adjustment) that has not been backed up. The vault should be updated to safeguard your work.
    • Red: At least one master in the library has not been backed up. The vault should be updated to protect against the loss of master image files.
  • Update All Vaults button: Click this button to update all of your connected vaults at the same time.
  • Vault Pane button: Click this button to show or hide the Vault pane.
  • Disk space available: Aperture keeps track of how much storage space is available on the hard disk used by a vault. Color-coded bars indicate the space used by the vault, unused space, and space used for other, non-Aperture files.
