    Like 10 hours ago I finally got iTunes Match enabled, and the process started, however it is stuck with this screen.


    How long does it take to complete the set up?

    My Library has 9,300 items ~140 Gb.

    I have about 15000 songs and 100ish GB and I havent taken that long. But I have a pretty fast connection.

    Depends on your connection speed and what percentage of your library is matched vs the percentage that will be uploaded.

    If, let's say, 10 or 20 GB will have to be uploaded, that will take a looong time if your upload speed is below 1mbps.

    Thank for the replies.

    I have a 4 Mbps upload service.

    It has matched a lot of songs, but it doesn't finish.

    I left the Mac on, and with iTunes running, but it seems that it stops.
    Then I click the Start button again for it to continue.
    I have done that several times during the last two days.

    This is today's status:
