Hi everybody

Recently I upgraded my computer to the latest LTS Ubuntu. Before doing that I backuped all my data including 10k+ music files which I handle with gmusicbrowser. I switched to this player about a year ago because I did not want to have player specific libraries anymore and all song information including ratings and playcounts should be stored in the files themselves. So before I backed everything up, I told gmusicbrowser to write all information into the files (which should had happened automatically as this is the default setting which i did never change) - just to make sure. I double checked the files before I backed the up all metadata were in there.
Then I copied the files onto my backup hard disk (unfortunately I did not check the files after I copied them).
After I set up the system I moved the songs back to my computer. Then I realized, that all metadata were gone... at least to my knowledge by looking them up in the properties of a song within gmusicbrowser.

Here my best guess: I did something wrong, metadata gone forever - if that is true what did I do wrong? Did they get lost while copying/moving?
Here is my best hope: gmusicbrowser did not accurately read all tags - how do I make it read them properly?

Any help appreciated - thank you!
