I was backing my music up to another drive (just copying the iTunes folder over) like I usually do, when I got a permission error on a song that stopped the transfer. Being on my way out I quickly just checked the folders permissions and dragged it over to copy again. Up popped the "this already exists...replace?" jargon and I hit "OK" to overwrite all. I went back to getting ready and glanced up and noticed I had dragged the incomplete backup folder to my complete iTunes collection. Everything was gone. I quickly downloaded Data Rescue II to try and recover anything, but it was all a scramble of names and when filtered through iTunes it was a crapshoot of full albums. But the program did do a good job of finding some long since deleted stuff (I didn't need it) in case anyone was looking for a recovery program. My only option was to get it off my 80g iPod which had my entire collection on it (72gb). I didn't want to do this because I know most extraction programs rely on iTunes to reorganize it and I had my shit organized MY way: /personal collection (my rips) /extended collection ("other" sources) And each of those was had a few subfolders for /Soundtracks, /Classical, /Classic Rock. So that way the folders of songs themselves were easy to find if I needed. iTunes isn't the best at auto-organizing music it didn't rip itself, especially when not all the ID3 tags are filled. So I tried Sentui, which was working good, but not how I wanted to retain my album organization. I'm trying this other program now called iPodDisk which basicly mounts the iPod drive as a networked drive and you can see all your shit in folders giving you a slightly better chance at retaining your own personal organization methods. Anyone have any other suggestions for software?
