    OLD itunes library disappeared when I created a NEW library in MULTIPLE LIBRARIES. Where can I find my OLD library with all my tags?

    Have you looked into the iTunes Music folder?

    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?
