I subscribed to iTunes Match a few years ago. In January of 2013, I did not renew my subscription as I left Apple to the land of Sony. Yesterday, I purchased a new iPod Touch looking forward to returning to the world of iTunes. Upon subscribing to Match again I have discovered all my music is literally gone, and the only songs available are those I purchased and none of my ripped CDs etc arethere anymore. Is this normal?


iPod touch, iOS 7.1

    Hi,

    Yes.

     

    Once match expires you lose access to all music in the cloud except for iTunes Store purchases. It is up to you to make a back up of your music. The music needs to be in your iTunes library when you resubscribe to match.
