OK, I need some help.   I have an entire music collection imported into itunes.    all the mp3s are categorized in folders by artist then by album.   I needed to rebuild the library so i deleted them from itunes.   I accidentally hit "move to trash" in the process.     Now,  All my music is in the trash and the "undo" option is grayed out.    How can i pull all these music tracks back into their proper folders??   Pleas help,  as this would be a nightmarish process to put all these loose files back into the proper folders.

How were they organized in the first place?  If you have iTunes set to "Keep iTunes Music folder organized", then just put them back into the itunes music folder and then just reopen them from iTunes.  iTunes will then reorganize them into folders according to artist and album.

str8edgepunker:     I had them all in a folder by artist, then in a folder by album name.  Each album had album art.

I don't know the solution for MacOS, but you can search the web for an undelete or recovery files software, in windows I've used R-Studio and it had had a great successful rate.
