View Full Version : Oh Shed!

I was just editing some tags in my music library, I have over 25,000 tracks.

I put the artist down as Gaslight Anthem, clicked the apply to all tracks button, and clicked ok.

The app greyed out for ever, during which time I realised that I had inadvertently selected my entire library. :shock:

I didn`t know The Gaslight Anthem had done so many tunes.

Hopefully whatever you're using has an undo feature and/or filenames follow the same pattern so you could recreate your tags. Otherwise... my sympathies.

Have fun with that!

Assuming that your music library is in some kind of sensible heirarchy (i.e. Artist/Album/Track.mp3) you can use EasyTag to fill the tags from the path pretty easily.

Failing that, I think you may be SOL unless you've got a complete backup of your library somewhere.

That sounds like a rolaid moment right there!
