I had 2 copies of each file on my HD. One was from before I started using itunes, so my own music folder divided into genres. The other one was the one that itunes created, so basically it took everything and duplicated it. Just yesterday I finally got ready to say goodbye to the original files; i had kept them because that's the way i had organized my music file for years and years, and even though itunes had copied everything and created its own folder with its own structure, i just didn't want to delete the originals. Anyways, so I did, but i forgot that the itunes folder was also in my mac's music folder. So I DELETED EVERYTHING. Oh please tell me there's a way to recover the files, pleeeeeeeeeeease.
