    Hi guys,

    I use iTunes match for all my music listening usage (MBP, iPad, iPhone) etc so that I don't have to have GB's of storage full of music on my devices etc.

    However it occurred to me everytime I click on a song in iTunes on my MBP or mobile device such as my iPad that it downloads the song anyway?

    So my question is where does that downloaded song go? Does it get deleted after so long? I'm just thinking am I just redownloading all the songs individually?!

    Thanks for any comments

    Thanks for that reply. It doesn't really say what happens to the songs I stream when in iTunes on my MBP. Once I click on a song it seems to stream and then it will stay. I'm wondering whether it stays in the RAM until I shut down or whether they are stored in a temporary folder?

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks

    A song wouldn't be stored in RAM, but in a temporary folder.
