I’ve downgraded from Catalina, no backups. I’ve read several similar topics about reinstalling macOS or crashed HD’s and and you have answered

In that case, you can simply import the Spanned Media into iTunes without having iTunes copy the files back to the default iTunes Media folder.

To do this, go into the Advanced iTunes Preferences and uncheck the "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library" checkbox and click OK.

Then, you can just drag in your media and iTunes will reference the files from where they currently are

Unchecking is easy, but how do I “drag the media into iTunes” need step by step I guess thanks

You can highlight the folders or files in Finder and then click and drag and then drop them onto the iTunes window.

You could also use the "Import…" option in the File menu of iTunes.
