Last Version of iTunes 9
Authored by: lullabud on Sep 08, '10 08:42:02AM

Joyfully I found this in the last version of iTunes 9. It was certainly not there through all of iTunes 9, and I don't know when this feature was put in, but I've had to do this the manual way enough times that when it popped up and offered to automatically handle this mundane, automatable task I nearly fell out of my chair.

Interestingly, this missing file business is related to some buggy behavior I've seen where my music Library was stored at the old ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Music location... every time I played a file it would move it to ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Music/ and often times after restarting the files were unable to be found. This was infuriating because not only does it underscore the illogical redundancy of such a long path, but it meant that all of the files I liked, the ones I was playing, got lost and I ended up with only songs I didn't really like as much that were playable without having to locate the actual file myself.

I was so hoping Apple would announce a complete redesign of iTunes, maybe even a new app altogether since it does so much more than just tunes these days, that would fix all of the little annoying bugs or at least replace them with different little annoying bugs. Alas we'll have to wait for that...
