Hi all

 

I've had to buy a new PC, as my old one does'nt boot up anymore, I subscribe to itunes match, so when I install itunes onto the new PC, can I recover (download) all my music from my icloud? Will I lose all my playlists? Also, if I can redownload them ,can I also store them on my hard drive on the new PC?

 

Thanks

    Hi,

    Sign into itunes store and into Match. You will be asked to add this computer. Match will scan your library and then display all you music that you have in imatch.

     

    Each track will have download symbol when you view library in song view. Therefore you can download and store on your computer.

     

    It is also a good idea if you also create a backup on an external drive if you already have one. Don't rely on the cloud as your sole back up.

    Hi,

    When you download the tracks they are saved in your itunes library on your PC - itunes creates default folders. i see no reason to change this.

     

    Once download you can back up your downloaded music to an external hard drive.

     

    Look at http://www.apple.com/uk/support/itunes/library/
