I am not sure to what extent you you lost all your files, but if you are sure they are completely gone, there is only way to get your music and other data files back and that is through recovery software.

It is a software called File Salvage from a Mac software developer called Subrosasoft.

Here is the link: FileSalvage 7.0.1

I have used this software to retrieve 4 Gigs of lost iTunes music before and it works great.

It does retail under $100.00USD ($89.95USD)
and is one of the better, effective recovery applications for the Mac OS X platform.

How to re-create iTunes library


Follow these steps:

1. Quit iTunes.

2. Locate your iTunes folder.

For Microsoft Windows XP and 2000 the iTunes folder is stored in

System drive\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\

For Microsoft Windows Vista the iTunes folder is stored in

System drive\Users\username\Music\

3. Open your iTunes folder.

4. Drag the iTunes Music Library.xml to the Desktop

5. Drag the following file from your iTunes folder to the Trash:

Microsoft Windows: 'iTunes Library.itl' (in versions of iTunes prior to 4.9 this was called 'iTunes 4 Music Library.itl')

6. Open iTunes.

7. From the File menu, choose Import.

Note: Do not add any music into iTunes at this point.

8. Navigate to the iTunes Music Library.xml file on the Desktop.

After re-creating your library, any devices that you sync with iTunes (Apple TV, iPod, etc) will see your iTunes library as a new library and will completely re-sync.

Itunes wont open


A corrupt iTunes library prevents the iTunes program from opening and prevents Apple device synchronization. According to Apple, the iTunes library must be rebuilt, which resets the library and removes the current content in the media manager. Back up your media prior to recreating the library, as the recreating process erases all content and your Apple device will synchronize with the blank, recreated library and erase the device's information.

Insert the DVD-RW disc into the computer's DVD-RW drive, and open iTunes. Click "File," "Library" and "Backup to Disc." Select the iTunes library and playlist backup and click "Next." Eject the disc after the backup completes, and close out of iTunes. Move "iTunes Music Library.xml" from your iTunes folder to the desktop. Right-click "iTunes Library" and click "Delete." Launch iTunes and click "File," "Library" and "Import Playlist." Locate and double-click the iTunes Music Library.xml file. Insert the burned disc into the DVD-RW drive and click "Restore." or
Fix iTunes if It Won't Open on Your Computer b> You've clicked and clicked and clicked some more, but iTunes just refuses to launch. A non responsive program is frustrating to any computer user, but especially if all you want to do is listen to some music or download a new album. If iTunes isn't opening, there are many possible causes for this error. None of these fixes will affect your current music collection. Though you may need to tweak or reinstall some software, your MP3s will stay right where they are.

Confirm that your Apple device is connected securely to your computer. If you are not trying to access iTunes via an Apple device, or if your device is connected correctly, continue to step two. Configure your firewall to allow iTunes to connect to the Internet. Many firewalls block software programs' ability to get online as a security precaution. This is because some spyware and malware is designed to transmit personal data from your computer. Making iTunes a trusted program within your firewall software is necessary for it to function properly. Create a new iTunes library file. An unstable or corrupted library file can cause iTunes to suddenly quit or not open at all. Recreating a library file is a lengthy process that depends heavily on the operating system you are using. See the iTunes Support page under. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1451 Reinstall iTunes on your computer. If no other troubleshooting steps are successful, then the fastest way to solve the problem is to start from scratch. Hope this helps.
