    I filled up the main harddrive of my PC, so I moved half the contents of my main music folder over onto the other drive in an effort to free space.

    Of course you know it then gives you those little '!' symbols telling you the music isnt connected. I dragged and dropped the new folder into iTunes in order to re-import them but now I'm left with duplicates where half of them are left over from the original link.

    Is it possible to remove music with broken links from iTunes' lists? I know you can sort by duplicate, but I have about 10 gigs of music to wade through and select every other song. Is there an easier method?

    Does anyone have a good solution to this problem? I haven't moved any of my music from the external hard drive where it lives, yet I continue to get broken links in iTunes. I can't possibly go thru all of them manually and fix them. I thought about deleting all the songs and readding, but will lose add my added dates and play counts I assume. Please give me some advice!!! Zune never has broken links like this so iTunes is very frustrating to me. I need some tips.

    I just wiped the library and started again. There may be a way, but I couldn't find it at the time.

    Seems like there has to be a way. I have maybe a couple hundred broken links. I really wish iTunes was smart enough to prevent these broken links from occurring or I'd even be happy if there was a faster way to repair. As it is, the only way I know to repair is to repair each song one by one by browsing to the song location.
