I have been keeping my music library (< 15K tracks) on an external FireWire drive for the last 2 years. One day, I accidentally unplugged the drive (without ejecting it first), and as a result, each of my files is corrupted, including the entire iTunes library. I have tried to repair the drive in Disk Utility, Data Rescue 3, and Disk Warrior. No luck. Since the library database is stored in my home folder and not on the external drive, all of my meta data is still in tact, but the tracks do not play. Is there any way I'd still be able to send this to iTunes Match and essentially re-download my library from the cloud? I know this is a bit of a stretch... but I'm curious to know if anyone has any idea on if this would be possible. I know iTunes verifies that the actual MP3 exists before sending data to the cloud (and it should). I also know that it would take a long while to download all of my tracks back. However, hypothetically, is there any workaround or loophole I can use to get my library back via iTunes Match?
