Did you use metadata writing in files ?

If yes you just have to rescan your album directory and tag should come  

For me, "database only" tagging is not an option, even not a sufficient  

Personally, I always use metadata writing in the files. But for now it  
probably doesn't help you if do not use it...

Did you have make backup of your database ?
