Hi all,

I was happily sitting at my computer listening to iTunes music and doing some other work when the power in my house went out for about 10 seconds. The iMac and the external HDD where I keep all my music went down and when I fired the computer back up well over half of my iTunes library is missing. However it appears that the files are still there on the HDD.

When I launched iTunes again it gave some error message about renaming the music library to "itunes(Damaged)".

What I would like to know is, is there any way in which I can restore all the music in one hit or do I have to go to the file import music option and do every track individually?

Thanks in advance for your help.
