    I'm not sure why, but a load of music has suddenly gone missing from my iTunes library.

    I added a few new albums to different artist folders, and instead of adding each folder to the library individually [using "Add to Library" from the File menu], I decided to take a shortcut and add my entire Music folder to the Library.

    Now, a load of stuff is missing, and I have a massive collection, so I don't know exactly what's there and exactly what has gone. Searching using Finder confirms that the files are completely gone from my hard drive.

    Why the hell didn't I use Time Machine!?

    You mean you screwed up and now you wish you had used Time Machine, right?

    Is it possible the files have just been moved into the iTunes Library folder?
