    Well I dont if it can be done now but whenever something anything happens like a bad rename or you move a folder file or whatever and you immediately know you made a mistake... just push ctrl+z and it will undo what you have done.
    Dont know if this helps right now but it is good for future use...

    so you didnt click edit and undo straight after then. OMG sounds like you have to play each and every song and try to rename it :confused: 986 :(

    Idea of little help, but what the heck:

    Sort all your .mp3's by creation date. At least that way you'll probably be able to rename in bunches if you copied them off cd's a few at a time. If not, then no help at all I guess. So sad!!!!!

    In future....

    Oh man, that really would upset me...gotta lot of mp3's.

    I guess you know, but in future, if you have the space, 'BACK 'EM UP' before doing any "cleaning up". Saves on the "Ooops" factor a bit...hehe j/k

    if your mp3 have ID tags you can use this program http://surf.to/mptagger to rename the files acording to the ID tag, most of them do have ID tags, and i think it beats the hell out of renaming 1 by 1 :)

    Try playing them in MusicMatch Jukebox and then getting it to rename by accessing CDDB if they do not have tags.
