Rhythmbox had double links to all my mp3s because I moved folders and I wanted to get it to rescan so I highlighted everything and clicked "Move to Trash." Now I want to undo this, but Trash won't open. top output doesn't even indicate that nautilus is taking up resources.

Please let me know if you have any ideas before I restore from backup.

You can navigate to the Trash by pressing CtrlL in a folder window and entering trash://.
