if you experienced a crash or other abnormal behavior, you might want to attach log files from /Users/warrenhartwick/Library/Logs/beaTunes

    Hi Warren,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    Please create a file called recover in the directory /Users/warrenhartwick/Library/Application Support/beaTunes/Database/. It does not matter what's in the file - it can be a simple TextEdit document with no content at all, but it must not have a file extension (i.e., recover, not recover.txt). Then update to beaTunes 3.5.5.

    When starting 3.5.5 it should show a dialog stating that it is trying to rebuild your database. This may or may not succeed. If it does not succeed, please send me a fresh set of logs.
