    Have you looked into the iTunes Music folder?
    Macintosh HD / Users / YOU / Music / iTunes

    libraries disappear

    There are no libraries in folders...only files. Looking in the itunes files does not restore the library.
    I had my itunes folder backed-up on an external drive so I was able to restore it though I'm not sure, in my stumbling around how I accomplished that. So now I'm afraid to try again and risk hundreds of hours of metadata.
    I followed the easy steps: Created new library. LOST ORIGINAL. How can I make new library without losing the old one?
