Question: My purchased music is missing from iTunes

Suddenly my purchased music is missing from iTunes. I see it in my account but not in iTunes itself. What happened to it? Where did it go and how do I get it back?

See Hide and unhide apps for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac - Apple Support and check that the purchases have not been hidden. iTunes 12.7.2.60 dropped yesterday and it might possibly help. It isn't showing in software update so go to iTunes - Download iTunes Now - Apple.

Update did not fix my issue. Still waiting from response from Apple. I replied to their token email giving me a list of things to try. I did, nothing worked, and I sent them my screen shots. I haven't heard anything in response. Newest iTunes did nothing for me.

That first link should have been to Hide and unhide music, movies, TV shows, audiobooks, and books - Apple Support. Looks like one document has been split in two and I wanted to link to the half that has ended up at a new address. 😮

I found & re-downloaded my purchased music. I was on hold with iTunes & clicked on Account>Purchased. When the Purchased window opened I saw my list of Purchases Not in My Library. For some reason all of my purchased music un-downloaded. I had to re-upload which was a pain & very frustrating but it’s all there now.

That sounds somewhat like the situation I discuss in Empty/corrupt iTunes library after upgrade/crash. Your media folder may be full of duplicate files now, only some of which are connected to your library.
