Half my iTunes videos spanned to a 500GB drive died. My original videos at the previous location was not deleted. How do I get Tunespan to point iTunes back to this original location.

I'm so sorry to hear about your drive failure :-( That's never a good time.


If your media files are still in their original location, it's pretty simple to get them pointed back to there with TuneSpan.


You can select all the tracks that were on the external to span, and then set TuneSpan to Restore Mode with the toggle on the bottom left.


Then, hit Restore on the bottom right and proceed like you would any normal span.


If the files are exactly in their original restore location, TuneSpan will find them and simply update the locations in iTunes, the process should go very quickly since files won't be copied.


But, TuneSpan will not go hunting for files if they're not exactly where it expects.


Please let me know what the restore results window shows, you could attache a screenshot if there are any issues.
