    Noooooooooo...

    I've just performed the iTunes software update and it's cleared my entire library!

    Any way I can get it back? Dozens of playlists gone! All my ratings gone!

    Bugger!



    Cheers guys,

    Steve.

    Hold Option/Alt while starting iTunes. It'll ask you to select a library. Find the Previously Libraries folder and select the most recent one.

    I always just back up my iTunes to my external once every month or so, just to be safe....
