rebuilding Itunes library on a windows machine and music after a hard drive crash.
Posted on 2012-03-18
The hard drive of my windows 7 machine recently crashed and I had to replace it and reinstall everything. I'm running windows 7 pro on an HP pavilion with two internal drives.
In my original configuration I had set my i-tunes media file to save everything to the second drive rather than the one my operating system was on so all of my I-tunes files including (I'm assuming) the i-tunes library files are still intact.
What's the best way to go about rebuilding I-tunes and re-syncing with an old IPod an Iphone 4 and an Ipad (none of which have the complete library on them)
Is there a way to reconnect to the files on this second drive so I don't have to rebuild all the play lists or am I stuck with having to re-import all the media files in and creating the play lists by hand.
