    I was clearing some space on my computer and accidently deleted the music from the 'my music' folder. I didn't realize that that would delete my i tunes library. :eek:

    Somehow I managed to keep all my purchased songs but the rest of the songs are all gone from my computer! Everything is still on my ipod as it was but I was told that if I sync any new songs from my PC to my Ipod that I will loose the whole lot!:(

    I rang technical support but they were useless and told me to google the answer as they couldn't help!

    Is there any way that I can reverse sync my tunes from my ipod to a computer or disk? Im not technically minded so it would need to be easy to do?

    There are several apps out there that will help, Senuti is one.

    Did the files go to the trash?
    Time machine?

    No backup at all to restore??

    I also would suggest setuni in that scenario then and then start backing data up. Redundancy is always a good thing.

    That's lame of cust support. Maybe they're not allowed to answer the question by recommending certain software.

    Anyway, google "transferring songs from ipod to computer". I've done this 4-5 times and there are programs out there including senuti that let you transfer songs. Some are timed trials, and some are $14. Good luck though, and I would absolutely invest in an external HD to back up your files. If you had time machine, you can literally access the saved songs and transfer them without doing a full timemachine rewind. And drives are soo cheap these days, less than $80.

    Hindsight is a great thing haha!

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for all the ideas:).

    I checked my recycle bin but with no luck!I should have backed up everything but was too lazy :rolleyes:

    I got senuti but with no success. Eventually and stupidly I bought it but now it's telling me that my ipod isn't connected! Im pulling my hair out:mad: The usb port is ok and so are my cables as i've borrowed a friend's as I thought mine was faulty, so I'm back to square one!

    I guess I'll just have to live with my mistakes!:(
