HELP!!!

As my computer works to recover my files, I have noticed that my individual music tracks are being removed from the files that contained them... Example would be AC/DC Back in Black. The file itself is empty of the individual song tracks. The songs however are being recovered and saved alphabetically with every other song title.

Is there a way to solve this easily, or are my files so corrupted that I may as well start over?.?.

    Your recovery program probably only recovers files, but not necessarily the folder structure. Your tracks are files. They were organized into folders (albums). That's doesn't mean the files are corrupted; just disorganized.

    Does that mean I will need to place all 40,000 tracks back within their respective folders one b y one?

    Remember John, the files are in the computer!

    It depends. Most people prefer to organize their files like that (obviously you did), but music programs usually organize by tags. This might help.

    Also, you should have made a complete backup of your files when they were previously organized...

    John, if you invest in Roon or another quality music organizer, it should automatically do that for you without hand holding or reorganizing all the folders/files. Assuming the meta tags are accurate.
