I backed up my HDD using Acronis on a different PC, I then commenced a clean install of windows 7.
I have restored my documents and music back, and yet there is none of my music there, is there anyway of getting the music back?

I don't know if it is the same on the pc or if there is a better, faster way, but the only way I've ever done it is select all, and then drag and drop. It will take some time to load, depending on how much you have there.

If anyone has a more efficient way, the help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey guys. :)

I have been using iTunes for goodness knows how long and as far as I am aware there are two methods.

The first is the "drag and drop" from your folder, which can take some time (as Beeker mentioned).

The other way is if you let iTunes look after the music. iTunes has a separate folder in My Documents which you can keep your music in instead, as this allows iTunes to "look after" your music. If you backup this folder, install iTunes and paste this folder into iTunes' default location, sometimes iTunes will pick up the folder and do it for you.

Of course, in your situation (as far as I am aware) you will have to use the drag and drop method, provided that the music you say you restored is the folder that you kept all your music files in.

Hope this helped. :thumbup2:
