I previously purchased some movies and TV shows.

When I cleaned my computer, I was unable to take them off my itunes and keep them from using my MacAir memory unless I removed them from my computer. I cannot uncheck them from my itunes library, I had to delete them from my Itunes Media folder.

This seems to have made it impossible to download them from the cloud to my computer again.

How do I fix this?

How do I keep these items in the cloud, but off my computer without using my hard drive?

Thank you

    The reason you can't re-download from your purchase history is becaue you deleted the files from the Finder (file system) but not in iTunes. Delete the movies from the iTunes library as well, then you will be able to re-download from the purchase history.

    iTunes prefs > Store.

    Tick Show iTunes in the Cloud purchases.

    (If it's not there, log out of hte store then log back in. It's kinda flaky)

    All your purchases should show wtih a cloud icon next to the title.

    Click the cloud icon to download or right click - Download.

    If you just click Play, it wil stream and not download to your computer.
