Reload media library

Is it possible to reload your media library?

I have a big collection of albums on my HD. Due to an error of mine I deleted the whole collection . Luckily I had an backup of the collection on an external HD. But that external collection is probably not the same as the collection in Winamp. So I need to reload the media library. How does one do that?

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

Foot in mouth: Options --> Media Library --> (Watch folder tab) Local Library --> Rescan now

i also set it to remove missing files, and to NOT guess metadata, and instead rely on tags only.
