I had the same problem. The answer for me was to re-add My Music to the Music library. It was all there.

FWIW:  AFAIK...there is no player that can actually delete files.  The players merely are proxy/dummy accounts that allow users to see video/music files which have been "imported" into the player.  The files themselves remain in the original locations where the user has placed them, be it My Music or any other folder on any partition.

 

In any case, glad that you each resolved your individual situations.

In some cases you can also restore files that were deleted if their sectors weren't overwritten using a program like Recuva. I've recovered mp3s and small text documents before. Just to throw that out there.
