I do not use iTunes but instead store my music files in nested folders in
/Users/User/Music. I recently downloaded Tomahawk, a music player.
I decided quickly that I preferred to stick with VLC for playing music, only to find that I can no longer use VLC as all my files are removed from my music folder. I restarted, and some of the files appear in Tomahawk program while other are gone. It seems unlikely (and would be very unfortunate) if the files have been totally deleted; I imagine they are hidden somewhere on my computer. Where can I find them, and/or is it possible to reset my system to a few hours ago or restore them in some other way?
Note: it is not the entire folder that has been removed. The folder structure (subfolders for each artist, etc.) remains, and other files, like images of the album covers in .jpg format, remain.
