Empty Media Library

My tracks are stored on an external harddrive, it was unplugged, WinAmp deleted missing files and now my Media Library is empty, any way to restore?

if they've been removed then you'll have to re-add them i'd have thought as once out of the media library database any information which was stored related to them will have been removed as well.

Thanks DrO, I was hoping you'd say that WinAmp kept backups. I guess now I can start to move on.

The only way you'll be able to restore it is if you made a backup of %appdata%\winamp\plugins\ml\main.dat & main.idx

For future reference, uncheck "Automatically remove missing files" in: Prefs -> Local Media -> Watch Folders tab

You can still manually remove missing files (when the drive is connected) via: Library button -> Remove missing files...
