I'm hoping that someone would be able to assist me.  I've naively deleted some purchased movies from my macbook air believing that I could re-download them from the icloud, as you can do with TV shows, music, apps and books, at a future date, but it seems like I'm wrong.  I was wondering if someone can point me to a solution to this issue.


Secondly, now that I've discovered that am unable to restore these movies, I was wondering if someone can point me in the direction of how to backup my purchased movies to a Data DVD, as used to available in iTunes 10.3, but is no longer available in iTunes 10.5.3.  According to Apple's technical support (knowledge base), I need to purchase a Time Capsule.


Any help would be much appreciated.  Kind regards,
