It was a stupid mistake and I accidentally deleted it from itunes. The thing is though is that I use it loads and would really like it back. Anyone know how to get the itunes purchased playlist back please?

You can recreate your purchased playlist in iTunes by using a Smart playlist.

In iTunes go to File > New Smart Playlist

Match "Any" of the following Rules:

"Kind > "Contains">"Protected"
+
"Kind">"Contains">"Purchased"

Check the box "Live updating"

A new playlist will also be created next time you buy something from the store. When that happens you can drag your smart playlist to the new purchased playlist and it will add everything into the new one.

    Zevoneer has some great advice there, but you also get it back by DLing a free single of the week (if you are in a country that has that).


    You'll still have to drag your previous purchases over into it.
