Question: Songs incorrectly tagged as 'available for download'
iTunes (v22.214.171.124) on a recently formatted and reinstalled Windows 10 Home system.
I kept my iTunes Library.itl file and my music folder from my previous build. I can see all my music and playlists.
The problem is, iTunes has identified all my music as being 'available for download' from the cloud, rather than seeing it as being on my hard drive. When I try to download from the cloud, I'm left with two copies of my music in my folders.
I tried use the 'add folder to library' and added the top level music folder. That leaves me with two instances within iTunes, one saying that it's 'available for download' (cloud with downward arrow) and another with the 'waiting' (dotted line cloud).
Is there a way to have iTunes recognize the files I have on my hard drive and not show a separate copy in the cloud?
