I just reformat my laptop (OS: Windows 7 pro) and I lost all the songs, albums, and playlist listed on iTunes. I do have all the songs backed up in my external hard drive, now my problem is how can I add songs back to the iTunes by folder? Before in the previous versions of iTunes, it used to have a option to "add folder to library" or something like that. Now there is no option like that, and all I can see now is "add file to library". If I use this method, it will take up so much time to do it.


help please


thank you!

iTunes (latest version), Windows 7
