New postPosted: Thu Dec 01, 2011 1:59 pm 

Hello :wave: , I guess I really screwed up. I was trying to move my music from one folder to another. Some how I lost all the A's, and part of the B's. I tried system restore to get them back but that didn't work, what else if any thing can I do. Thanks Bikrdad :cry:

Are you able to use the "Previous Versions" feature in Explorer?

Right click music folder (not Music library) > Properties > Previous Versions tab.

Hey UVAIS, I tried both of your suggestions. The first one sent me to a maintance program, I already use Advanced Windows care Pro. The second had Recuva, I tried that and it searched my F drive and found nothing. I was wondering if I can use any thing in my back--up image.

What OS are you working with?

What is it you are actually doing, are you just moving the contents of your music folder to another folder in explorer? http://www.filehippo.com/download_teracopy/

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Working-with-files-and-folders

Or are you moving iTunes media folder to another folder within explorer? http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1364


Also what exactly did you do from start to finish when you realized this didn't go to plan?

Hey Makcalable, I'm useing win7 Home Premium. I was setting up a new music folder (tunes2). Went to transfer from orginal folder (tunes). I just dragged and dropped tunes into tunes2. About 7200 songs. When all was finished all the A's and half the B's were not there. I looked in tunes folder it was empty. I know now that I should have just left things where they were and used new folder for new music. Thanks Bikrdad

Are you sure there were no duplicates and that's why you think you are some missing? just a thought ;-)

So these were music files.... MP3's etc...? You mention A's and B's but how were these files named, were they named as proper titles?


Also when moving large files or lots of files in windows 7 I personally would use something like TeraCopy as this is much better for moving files, it also verifies once complete to make sure everything was moved successfully too.

Anyway, read the info provided and try a few of the recovery software's to see if you can get them back.

Let us know how you get on ;-)
