So a week or so ago I followed some online instructions for moving my itunes library to an external nas device. The remote file system was mounted with nfs and the remote host is a nas appliance running some Linux variant. Everything looked good and I imported about 100 CD's to the new location. Originally I had mounted the remote nfs share using the Directory Utility, however reading through some more documentation on Leopard (I'm relatively new at Macs in general) I found out that I didn't need to create that mount and I could use the automounting feature in the /net file system. In trying to get itunes to point to this location instead (/net/rhost/path/itunes) instead of the old mount point (/Volumes/rhost/path/itunes) iTunes got really confused. Eventually it wouldn't open and I ended up reinstalling (didn't help), then deleting all of the itunes related files from ~/Library/Preferences (iTunes started up after this). I then pointed iTunes to the correct path and began adding everything back to the itunes library since none of it came up automatically (like iTunes couldn't use the existing library file on the remote host). This morning I see only about one third of my music is in iTunes. Looking at a folder containing some of the missing music in Finder, all of the files are 0kb in size and have dates of Dec 31 1903. If I look at these files from Terminal, I see the correct dates and file sizes (~500-600kb). I also notice that the "@" is missing from the file permissions on these songs. All of the songs iTunes can see have the "@" intact on their permissions. I know this indicates something to do with extended attributes or resource forks, but I'm not sure exactly what. I'm also not sure how - if I can - to recover these files into iTunes. They are all .m4a files if that matters. I'm hoping someone can help me figure out what I did wrong so I don't do it again, and hopfully how to recover all of this stuff. I'd hate to have to start reimporting everything again. thanks in advance!
