    I'm not sure if this is the right program for me. My database is currently corrupt. It shows about half the files as 0 bytes.

    I'm going to restore the library but I'd like to keep the play counts and auto playlists. If I have WMP rebuild the library can I use Metadata Backup to just add the play counts back or will I be copying back the corrupted file size data as well?

    The file size tag in WMP's library is read-only, so Metadata Backup can't even restore it. Hence the corrupted file sizes definitely won't be restored when you restore the library from an XML file.

    Excellent, Metadata Backup worked just like I wanted. Restoring the library fixed the file size and Metadata Backup saved the play count.

    Thanks!
