    Thank you very much for reading this. Last night I was moving parts of my library from one drive to another. I did not lose a single song, nor did I lose any of the comments I have made on songs. However, I did lose my song ratings. That may be inconsequential to a lot of people, but I've carefully rated over 4,000 songs, and I am desperate to figure out where the ratings went. I've never understood where iTunes sticks information like ratings.

    Can anyone help me? Thank you so very much for your time.

    I think the ratings are stored in the XML in the Music/Itunes Music folder, I'd check but I'm at work on a iTunesless PC!

    If you want to copy the whole library then copy that XML too.

    They're stored in the iTunes Library file under /Users/username/Music/

    Check out this from Apple.
