This script attempts to locate the files of so-called "dead tracks"--iTunes tracks designated with (!)--that you assume are not actually missing but are still located in the iTunes Music folder in their "iTunes File Order" (Music -> Artist -> Album -> file.xxx). Any correct files found will be added to iTunes and will replace the "dead track" in each playlist it appears in (except Smart Playlists). Most tag data will also be rescued. Tracks whose files cannot be located will be ignored. Additionally, a text file report is generated that lists successfully resuscitated tracks and the tracks which couldn't be revived. Not a perfect solution! Read Me should be read thoroughly. iTunes 4.1 or better.
(Also see the application Music Folder Files Not Added.)
Designated as a Retro Script because it is very unlikely to work with modern versions of iTunes. Use at your own risk. You have been warned.
OBLIGATORY WARNING! Because this script has been designated as a "Retro Script" there is no guarantee that it will function as described and may even corrupt or destroy data.
