    Help, my iTunes lost its connection to my media server yesterday and it seems to have totally corrupted the library. A huge majority of the songs can't be found ("!"), others now point to an old music directory (how does that happen), and a few still point to the correct directory. I have all my music files intact, but if I recreate the library by starting afresh, I will lose 6 years worth of ratings, play counts, and last played dates. I do not want to lose this information. I have the information (ratings, etc.,) in an library export (.txt, csv file).

    How can I add back the music and restore the metadata??

    I can't possibly restore each file by hand as I have >13,000 music files.
