For movies, you could use:
Code:
texturecache.py imdb movies @imdb.fields=plot,plotoutline,votes,rating,top250,runtime,country,genre,director,writer,year | texturecache.py set
and this will "freshen up" your movies with current data from imdb.

I don't have a source for TV shows, so you'll have to re-scrape or re-fresh from NFOs.

For any missing artwork you'll need to look at an addon such as Artwork Downloader, or an external media manager.

Sometimes that's best.

Exporting may be a good idea for metadata (plot etc.), but not so good IMHO for artwork (it will be the sometimes lower quality version from your cache).

For artwork (and even NFOs) I'd always recommend the use of a media manager instead, ie. Ember etc. Or try mklocal.py, as this will store only original artwork in your file system (assuming it is still available) and not the quality-compromised cached version.

Code:
texturecache.py watched movies backup movies.dat
texturecache.py watched tvshows backup tvshows.dat
will backup your playcount, restore points and watched flags for movies and tvshows, respectively. Replace "backup" with "restore" to restore this information once you've rescanned your library.

"date added to library" is (by default) taken from the modification date of the media file, so there's no need to back that up.
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
