Up until recently I had my iTunes library on an external drive, but the drive was beginning to act up, so as a precaution, I copied all the media files onto my local hard-drive.

My external drive is now completely dead, so I'm in a situation where iTunes is still looking for the files on my F: drive, but the drive is gone, so the library references are now all broken links.

A complete copy of the library is on my C: drive, so I'm curious what would be the easiest way to repoint my library to the media files on C:?

Should I just clear out my library in iTunes and just import the files from C:? Or is there a more automatic way? I don't think I can use the "Consolidate Library" function in iTunes, b/c I no longer have access to the original library media files.

Under the Advanced Tab in iTune's preferences, you can change the location of your iTunes folder. Doing so should cause iTunes to find your media library in its new location.
