My Windows 7 Laptop HDD crashed. I bought a new HDD and installed Windows on it. I also installed iTunes.
I'm patting myself on the back for setting up full backups of my laptop to an external HDD. I have a backup taken from 2 weeks ago!
All my songs are on an external drive, but I do not have an XML copy of my library.
What do I have to do to restore my iTunes content from the backup?
