My computer just shut down as I had no battery power left. When I restarted, Itunes (that had been running) produced an error message, something like “your itunes library does not seem to be a proper itunes library, itunes created a backup library ituneslibrary (damaged) – I closed the window too quickly and did not quite get what it exactly was.
It seems that about 1000-2000 of my songs are gone, including all itunes store purchases, as well as all my playlists (I only have original CDs and music bought on Itunes in my library). What is the best way to restore the itunes library, everything was there before the computer shut down. I do have a back-up on time machine. Would it be easiest to restore from there, and if so how do I do it? Or is there a better way?
