should go here:

Hi David

Does this utility only apply to iTunes running under Windows do you know?  I
have some sympathy with Sunil's predicament, so it would be helpful to know
whether this utility can run under the Mac as well.

Many thanks.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Sunil,

You may want to consider a utility called Itunes Folder Watch. I can't find
where I got it from at the moment, but a google search should get it for
you.
Once installed, you can get it to search specified folders for music, and it
adds them to the itunes  library. It takes a lot less time than trying to
rebuild it manually.

Best,

David.

Subject: [BCAB] Tidying up iTunes library

Hi,

I've shifted a lot of files around and deleted a lot of duplicate files in
my documents since I first built an iTunes library on my computer. Because I
manipulated the files in Finder as opposed to doing it from within iTunes,
there are a lot of shortcuts in iTunes that point towards files that have
either been moved or deleted. Because there are so many instances of this I
thought I may as well delete my iTunes library and build a new one. I don't
have any playlists and am not bothered about retaining play counts or
anything.

Is there an alternative to starting all over again, maybe a menu option I
could activate from an options menu in iTunes? If not, what file to I need
to delete? I'd like to avoid deleting any important system files.

Thanks a lot,

Sunil
