yeah seem to have misplaced my music files...am sure i have not deleted them as that would take some doing. ( have so many) the folders are still there physically but on opening, the tracks come up on the playlist but have a blatant red cross beside them., and or "file does not exist"
found a stack of my music files on a software prog that ive recently installed - WinUtilites. am pretty sure ive used one of this prog's tools and have tempoararily moved them...compressed, archived them or something, as there is a huge list of single tracks, files. but theres 1,000's of them.
as ive a rather large music library that i dont want to lose, as theres lots of music which i havent burnt coz its not my thing...but i love being able to swap tunes so although i have cd copies of most of the music i listen too. would really like to retieve all the folders that i have ripped
have had to restore system b4 so thats an obvious choice, so if i have to do this is there a quick way of simply restoring the folders...without my having to do each folder on an individual basis, when transfering to "my music" as this would take a mammoth session, but will do it if theres no other way. oh have tried restoring and after 3 attempts with differing dates for this month havent been able to restore. i think coz i havent actually created restore date for some while but i will do regulaly form now on.
any help, guidance or remarks concerning this dilema would be gratefully recieved and i promise not to shoot the messenger ... even if its news i dont wanna hear/read
many thanx pple - CHIN CHIN
