So I did a search and looked 5 pages in and found nothing that addressed this issue. I'm running the latest iTunes, but have always had this problem: I have some of my podcasts marked as "Do Not Auto Delete" (achieved by right-clicking the podcast and choosing it from the pull-down). But they keep reverting to "Auto delete" and I lose podcasts that I want to keep. I have to go through and manually reset the podcasts to "Do Not Auto Delete" before I sync. WHY isn't it sticking? And what can be done to make it stick?
