I restored my iTunes folder from a Time Machine backup (due to my kids deleting some playlists, which I wanted to recover).

 

After that completed, I am unable to open iTunes, I get the error: "The iTunes Library Extras.itdb file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission."

 

Now, when I was doing the restore, it paused twice to tell me something like: a particular song could not be transferred, since there was already a copy of it with the same name... and something about it being case insensitive. I selected OK each time that happened, made a note of the song thinking oh well I can just get a copy of that song again if I lose it.

 

Any ideas? I looked at permissions for the iTunes folder, I have read and write permission.
