The latest version of iTunes just managed to throw away my entire stash of playlists whilst syncing with my iPhone. I've tried reimporting the .xml and .itl files, I've tried restoring older backups of those files, but nothing. Not only that, it's also forgotten I have all my tunes etc. on my hard drive, and thinks they're all in a cloud somewhere. So I'm reimporting the tunes into the library from where iTunes put them in the first place (having been careful to turn off the option to copy them into the iTunes folders!) - I have some vague hope that once they're officially all there again, it'll let me restore the playlists too.

If not, that represents a decade of playlists I'll never be able to recreate from memory. mad
If it's brokenless, don't suffix it...
