Thanks for the input but I've I'm aware of the location deal and have already done a .mp3 search on windows. It simply does not bring up a single song from my library. I can't find any of them. I know from simply upgrading the OS there is no way it would dump files. I did have a bit more free space on my C disk, but that's prob. just due to the leanness of 7 compared to Vista (not half as large as the space my mp3s would've freed up).

Here is the exact message:

C:\Users\Donsky\Documents\My Music refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.

Now before I upgraded I was advised to uninstall iTunes, so I did, but I still had all the music. I'm stumped. And I can't even run iTunes, like, I install it, but it can't boot because it's trying to create the iTunes Music folder in My Music, which apparently is corrupt or fucked up. It's not something you can change until the program is actually running.

edit: This is also important to note. My C:\ has about 35 gigs of 142 total free. Now, I checked every folder on the C and added up all the significant sizes and came up with that the whole drive only had 34.86 gigs used. Now 14 gigs for Upgrade + 35 gigs used = about 50 gigs total. When I upgraded I had about 65 gigs of music and 20 gigs free space. Thus if we add the 35 on C:\ now + 14 for upgrade + 20 free space = 70 gigs left, which is how much music I roughly have. It's on there somewhere, it's just hiding and I can't find it.

double edit: It also says (Empty) next to My Music directory...?
