Hey everyone - Just wondering if anyone has had the problem with iTunes where random music folders get wiped off your hard drive. Looks like some random unaddressed bug that's been going on for…Continue

Hey there, everyone. Just thought I'd drop a note to say hello. This site and forum looks like exactly the kind of thing I've been after. I'm not really a message-board kinda guy but have been…Continue

"Oh, I totally agree and personally back everything up on a separate external once a month. Trouble is, if it's been more than a month since the files were deleted, they're off the backup as well as it's been overwritten.   But,…"

"I haven't had any problems like this myself, but I think that this an excellent example of why we should all back up our data on a regular basis. I don't mean to be "that guy", but data losses like this are 100% preventable.…"

"Thanks Greg. I've not had the problem you are describing - but I do have my iPod set to manually sync, otherwise, same as you. I do not know if they are related.   At least you still have it on the iPod - there are various ways to retrieve…"

"Hi Liam, thanks for the reply. The answers would be yes, no, and iTunes is managing folders.   Here's an example: an album by an artist called Dave Hause, have it in my iTunes, and also on my iPod. Been on iPod for a long time. Just…"

"Questions.    Is your iTunes automatically syncing with your iPod?  Are you syncing between multiple machines? Is your iTunes set to manage your folders, or is it set to manually manage? "

"Bummer. Yeah, I really like iTunes and it's such an industry standard it's hard to want to change away from it. But having files go missing is just a killer. And how many are missing that I don't realize? Keeps me up at night... Greg"

"Yeah, nowhere to be found on the hard drive. Hadn't thought to change that preference, not sure if that would help or not but certainly worth a shot. Thanks! Greg"

"Is iTunes wiping it from your hard drive? You've probably already checked your Trash Bin, but just in case, I'm suggesting you do so. You can change the settings in iTunes so it doesn't mess with your music organized on your hard…"

"Hey David - No, ripped using iTunes, but not purchased through iTunes store. From what I've gathered from other reports, the bug is a random thing though, not related to where the music came from. I've yet to actually meet anyone who has…"

"Are those albums that you have ripped using non-iTunes software?  I have a friend that swears the system is hunting down her non apple tunes and whipping them out.  "

"Thanks, Shane. I had never heard of Songbird, but it looks good; I'm going to look into that. Looks like you can use it to sync with iPods, too.   I'm more or less happy with iTunes; it's a bit of a memory hog and can be a…"

Shane replied to Greg Pratt's discussion iTunes
"I haven't used it in years.  It worked pretty well to organize and playback my music though.  I was the same as you, few hundred gigs of music, until my comp caught fire.  I used RealPlayer for a while and liked it a lot, but…"

"Thanks for the update. Looking forward to more. If you want to discuss any points so far, I love those kind of discussions. But if you want to finish the book and stay in its frame of mind while you read, I totally get it. Cheers!"

"It certainly *can* be a fallacy. But is not always. Certainly one can ask for reasonable evidence to back the fears. Assuming that this kind of ordinance is going to walk back child molestation laws, or public nudity laws is a stretch that I do not…"
