    So I formatted my C drive, put Windows 8.1 on. Prior to the format, all my Itunes mp3s are on my nas (Y:\MP3). I installed Itunes, went to edit/preferences/advanced and changed the location to the itunes media folder to Y:\ (which is mapped in windows 8). I click on Keep itunes media folder organized, and copy files to itunes media folder, just as I did prior to format. Now, all my music shows in the itunes library, but has a Cloud with a down arrow next to it. Not sure why those icons are there, and if they will go away (have about 13,000 songs). Any clues?

    Upon reading that means the song is in Icloud and itunes isn't finding it locally.
