I've been using iTunes match successfully for a number of months on 7 different devices. I've deleted my original iTunes library yesterday on my iMac to free up HD space and was careful not to delete the songs from iCloud. I'm able to play any song from the other 6 devices via iCloud but when I try to play a song from my iMac i get the following message:


The song “The Razors Edge” could not be used because the original file could not be found. Would you like to locate it?


The iCloud Status shows Uploaded, other songs with the status of Matched have the same result.


Interestingly enough songs that I purchased from the iTunes store will play?


iTunes 11.01 (12)

OS X 10.8.2



Any thoughts or suggestions welcomed?

IMAC, 2.4 ghz 3GB ram
