I hate iTunes more than I hate Microsoft
So ... when I started putting folders from my giant hard drive into iTunes, I asked around and everyone said, "you are copying the folders, not moving them." When I looked at my external hard drive, there were TWO music folders. I assumed that the one with the BSG downloads was the iTunes one, because it had many of the same folders, but not all -- which makes sense, because I hadn't copied over all of the folders. So today, I looked at my iTunes folder, and decided I wanted to tidy it all up by starting afresh. Assuming that the stuff was still resident on my hard drive, I deleted. TO THE RECYCLE BIN, MIND YOU. I then went to my hard drive. Nothing there. Not true. Folders, but no actual music. I went to the recycle bin, and restored EVERY music folder. AFAICT, about 60 gigs of music is just gone. I am gutted and looking for advice. I'm also seriously considering calling X and asking him if he'll re-load my hard drive, if I send it to him. I am so truly upset.
