I recently had to revert to a 4-month old iTunes library file, and I need to update it with all the music I've added since then, still in the "iTunes Music" folder, filed by artist, etc. I tried "Consolidate Library" but that seemed to only scan for music elsewhere on the computer.

It also shows several missing files that are actually there as well (the little exclamation mark symbols).

Is there a way to make iTunes scan for these, or is there a third party app that will fix this?
