Most of my music is missing after I attempted to organize my music library with eyeD3.
eyeD3 has a function described as thus:
--rename=PATTERN Rename the file based on PATTERN which may contain the following substitution variables: %A (artist), %a (album), %t (title), %n (track number), and %N (the total track count). The PATTERN string MUST not contain the file name extension.
I ran this line of code:
$ eyeD3 --rename=./%t ./*
I tried running this too:
$ eyeD3 --rename=./%t *
My current working directory was /media/Music, where /media is a partition on my hard drive. All of the music from my Music folder is now missing except for: one song within each sub-folder, songs not within a sub-folder, and any songs with a .flac extension.
I had about 1000 songs. The operation was quick, and I do not think the songs could have been moved outside the partition or written over in the short amount of time. What happened? How can I get my music back?
