If you are trying to play a music or movie from the library with Windows Media Player 12, but the music or movie file was deleted, you will get the following error:

"Windows Media Player cannot find the file. The link from the
item is the library to its associated digital media file might be
broken. To fix the problem, try repairing the link or removing 
the item from the library."

You can delete this item from the library, if the file is truly gone.

Or you can copy the file back to the computer from your backup drive.
