Recovering Deleted Music From The iTunes Music Store

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Kurt R. Todoroff, Nov 9, 2006.

  1. My wife and I were deleting songs from the iTunes music library on her
    Mac. I had ripped these songs for her from our CD collection, and she
    didn't want them on her Mac anymore. Unfortunately, we accidently
    deleted three songs that she had purchased from the iTunes Music Store.
    We deleted them from the iTunes library, and we deleted the actually
    files from the Finder. Since she paid for these three songs, is there a
    way to recover them by downloading them again?

    Thank you.

  2. Are they on an iPod by any chance?

  4. In iTunes 7, in the left column, under Store, there's a directory titled
    "Purchased" Check there to see whether the songs are listed. If they
    are, copy them to the music directory. If not, I guess you're out of
    luck. Fortunately, it's only three songs.

    Adding to that, if you are dumb enough not to have backups, take this as
    a lesson as NOW being the time to start. And if, for whatever reason,
    the songs are gone-gone-gone, try sending an email to the iTunes Store
    with the details and they will likely (at least this one time) allow you
    to re-download the lost tracks.

  6. I do think that's nothing more than a playlist. If they are gone out
    of the library, then they would not be there either. Of course many
    computer users would not understand the difference between a playlist
    and the library so it bears checking.

    That's true. Perhaps you could enlighten us?
