    Here's my situation...

    I have an old iTunes library... maybe about 3 years old. I made a copy of it for a new computer and that copy became my new library.

    Well, I deleted some music and added some music to the new library.

    I subscribed to Apple Match (don't do it!) and it uploaded everything to iCloud.

    THIS is where everything goes bad...

    My disk crashed and I just happen to have a backup of my new library that was shared with Match.

    BUT many songs are only on Match! There isn't a physical file!

    All I see is a cloud next to song after song.

    I THINK my 3 year old library has the physical (Apple Lossless) file.

    How do I combine the two libraries so that I have as many physical files (WITHOUT DUPLICATES) in one library as humanly possible?
