    hi there,

    So, over the weekend my phone decided it doesn't have any music on it any more.

    My suspiscion is that the database file has messed itself up and just thinks there's no music on it - 30gb of data doesn't just delete itself, right?

    Does anyone know of a way to browse at root level to find the files and save them, some of these files are genuinely irreplacable (long story involving a pint of water and a macbook... Don't have a back-up, i'm a dick, i know.)

    I'm pretty sure the answer is something along the lines of "You're a f***ing idiot and you're f***ed, mate" but it's worth a shot, right?

    If the music database were corrupted the music would still be on there just wouldn't play (first-hand experience).

    I think iMyiPhone Umate can find those files for you. It's primarily a cleaner but it digs down at the root level where you can extract the files and save them to your Mac.
