Re: iTunes Match Question


If those songs were deleted then this time around it would need to upload unmatched songs again. There was no upload progress for the unmatched 3000 songs.

So why is the iCloud status saying "uploaded" if it did not upload it this second time around?

Does Apple keep uploaded songs archived so they don't need to be uploaded again?
It just seems that they can't get permanently deleted.

That sounds like a definitely possibility, doesn't it? (I didn't realize the 3000 from your original post were unmatched...)

Yes. Apple keeps uploaded songs for some period of time. If you re-run Match on a song that isn't in your current Match library, but was previously uploaded by you, it'll still find that copy and not reupload it.

I have no idea how long uploaded songs stay in their cache or if there's a way to truly remove them all (I'm guessing no).
