Re: [microsound] iTunes just ate a bunch of my unreleased music

Along the lines of backing up, I have found Time Machine to be fantastic for going back in time to different states of groups of musical projects. I do a quick Time Machine backup before and after every recording/editing session - and sometimes during... Very easy and fast.

That's interesting. I just got a MacBook (iTunes 7.6/OSX 10.5 Intel), and I noticed files disappearing from iTunes – but the files themselves are still where they always were. So don't panic if the y don't show up in iTunes – they may still be there. Still (repeat after me): back up frequently! (or get a Time Capsule!)

this is a heads-up for anyone using iTunes to preview/playback their unreleased music: my copy (iTunes 7.5/OSX Intel) just ate a bunch of really nice music that i'd made (aiff files) that i have no way of getting back.

obviously i'm not very happy about this at all, as i didn't have backups.

this isn't the first time i've noticed iTunes deleting files, but it is the first time i've noticed it deleting files that i was referencing elsewhere on the harddrive, rather than in its structured iTunes Library folder.

you have been warned.
