    I went to retrieve all my files from the iCloud (been using iTunes since about 2004). Quite a few of my tracks could not be retrieved, because they were purchased when I had older email addresses. Is there any way to consolidate all my various 'past selves' with my current one online, and get my entire collection?:D

    You can upgrade to "iTunes Plus" on your old account and download DRM-free versions of the same tracks. Not sure if they will charge you an extra 30 cents per song (since iTunes Plus tracks tend to be $1.29 not $0.99 as the old ones you bought).

    Though I suppose with iTunes in the Cloud maybe you will be able to log into your old account and just "re-download" them for free (not sure if iTunes in the Cloud applies to tracks purchased before "iTunes Plus" or not but I suppose it might, and those would be DRM-free iTunes plus versions regardless.

    You can also burn those tracks to a CD and rip them back into iTunes.
