    Usually it's not gone its just hidden.. Try looking in your music dir with a file manager

    You didn't by any chance use the "make more space" function in the settings menu? I did, and it apparently felt my music files were "temporary files in HTC apps." I had to reload my files.

    Yes, it appears I did make more space, but did not know the music files were temp. So, I guess there is no place to pull these files from a rabbits hat? oh, this is so depressing...ugh. thx....wallyiam!

    I went back in, and it says I have about 2G of "temp" files. It must be my music, so I think that's definitely the culprit. I'd be pissed if I didn't have my iTunes folders to restore them.

    Is the OP stock or on one of the last two leaks? I noticed the same thing yesterday. I'm currently on leak #2 and never had any issues, stock or ICS leak #1. Astro shows all of my music in mnt/sdcard. I even copied them to sdcard2 but Poweramp can't find in a full system scan. The only thing it's picking up is the google (play)music cache files, which are all listed as untagged MP3s. Coming from an O.G. Droid, the one thing that I can't stand is the confusing SD path.

    <edit> Just went into individual music files are they are all empty.

    I have not experienced the problem of missing music.

    Personally, I download all movies and music onto my laptop computer.
    From the laptop computer I copy these files to the Rezound's removable SD card.

    It is a habit from my iTunes days.
    Also, what happens to your music if your phone is lost or stolen?
    It is a good habit to first store the music on your computer/laptop for safekeeping and then copy to the phone.

    Regards
    Howard

    Solution

    The solution for this is to make a new Folder with a different name and put all your music there.
    The problem you have its that an app is owning your music folder.

    I was under the impression, from other threads, that the folder had to be named "Music" for the native app to recognize the files.

    As far as I know on either SD card it does need to be named "Music"

    I have been having problems with missing music as well. Randomly some songs are missing from the htc music app but clearly still on my sd card(I check using astro) but if I do a restart then all is back to normal...happens every couple days kind of annoying but that's the only issue I have with this phone...

    When this happens to me, I just use an app called rescan sd and it makes everything that was missing from your sd card not being read able to be seen again

    When I went to back up my music files on dropbox I found my music in two different files. One was named music and the other was named mp3. I condensed them both to the music file and left a copy on dropbox. I clear that temp file every couple of days and it never touched my music file.

    Just to be clear, the music sub-folders (artist names) were still showing but were empty of all data. The fact that they were on sdcard2 is a little worrisome. Not a big deal as I just throw a handful of albums on there in case google play music is acting up, but something caused the data to wipe.

    I tried unmounting and remounting sd card and its no use. I've searched every folder. Music is gone. Earlier, I had restarted my phone and realized it says its going to delete temp files. That's when it must have happened. Why on earth would it be programmed to think music, mp3s are temp files. Really? My music all came from my laptop, but its no small feat loading it again. Pain in the a**!

    Hi guys, looking for some further advice on here regarding this.

    I've got a standard unrooted Sensation XE which has a 16gb SD Card in it. It's now maxed out BUT I'm sure this temp file thing is causing even more issues than it should - going through my folders my music takes up aprox 6.09gb on the car. Everything else adds up to no more than 3gb

    Yet my "Tempory Files From HTC Apps" is showing 6.10gb of data maxing out my card.

    I've tried accessing the phone through my pc then DCIM and deleting the thumbnail, but that only ever deletes around 1.5gb data.

    It seems to me like this temp file has duplicated all my music files somewhere seeing as it's almost a carbon copy in terms of size.
    I've gone through subfolders looking for duplicates but cant find them.

    Any idea's?

    Here's a list of my folders with the space being occupied by them
