    I had to rebuild my iTunes library from scratch. By doing this, I have lost all of the Apple Music tracks I had added to my library as a subscriber to that service. I had quite a few of them and have no record of what tracks I had added. Is there any way to, at a minimum, get a list of them so I can re-add them to my library or does Apple Music have a way to restore the tracks I added directly?

    Did you use Time Machine to restore? They should have been there.

    No, had to rebuild from scratch, starting with blank library and adding all my music back in from media folder. Is it possible to to into time machine and create a new iTunes Library from it, look in the new library to filter Apple Music tracks, then toss the library (I really don't want the problems that were in it back then)?

    You should have just restored all your music from Time Machine and saved the trouble. In Time Machine your :apple:Music will be mixed in with your owned music. So you will have to sort or look through but it should all be there under Music/iTunes/Music.

    Something was corrupted in iTunes which caused us to lose about 2000 files. Popular thought is that the source of the problem was my wife and I using the same media folder for individual libraries. Didn't want to restore from TM as I did not want to bring whatever problems might have been in the system and rebuild around them. So I chose the clean rebuild route.
