Well, re-installed the OS on my wife's computer this past weekend. Her iPod was basically her backup for her music because I thought (as insane as it sounds) that iTunes could suck the music back in after the install. It doesn't.

Yesterday evening I hear screams coming from our office. iTunes apparently doesn't like a dirty iPod and decided to clean it up which entailed deleting 7 Gigs of music and photos. Thanks Apple!

I immediately had my wife call Apple to see if they could help her restore her data. Well, they wouldn't even answer a question until we gave them a credit card number?! Keep in mind it's still under a 1 yr warranty. Thanks again Apple!

My next step was to do some data recovery. I d/l some software and ran it. It found the missing songs and I restored them to my hard drive. Whew, i'm a hero now! Wrong. The restored files are all screwed up. Mis-labled songs, overlapping songs, etc...

CTRL-Z, do you think your script can help me with my situation?

P.S. - IMO Apple purposely weaved this inconvenience into iTunes...LAWSUIT!? I'm just kidding about the lawsuit, but seriously, why leave out simple and obviously needed functionality. If they didn't do it on purpose, maybe they need to re-structure their QA dept. I'm betting it was purposeful though.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
