    I had some songs which for some reason had numbers in front of them, and I'm just really dumb....I had the script that removes characters and stuff from front and back, so I put the number 5 thinking it will remove all letters that are five...or whatever but I ended up selecting every single song on my library and now all the songs have like the first 5 characters ripped off and I don't know what to do as there is no undo function or anything....and I don't neccesarily have a recent backup of my itunes only hope is my iphone that has all the songs and stuff but it's only a rename! It will take FOREVER TO RENAME THOUSANDS OF SONGS how can I do it faster? Urghhh >_<

    Edit: Oh well I have a backup that's like from May 20, I have all my backups of CD's and stuff but it's like I didn't want to lose my date added and play count stuff...just more work but I restored the library from time machine and I will just readd whatever else I need by hand.
