    I was curious to see if an album was available through the UK store, so I switched to the UK iTunes store. When I went back to the US store, all my iTunes matches were gone. I'm being prompted to initiate the match process again. Anyone else have this happen?

    I'm using this as an opportunity to clean up my tags with tuneup, so it's not a huge deal, but I'm wondering if I should avoid switching stores until iTunes match is available in the applicable country.

    ok, so it is still in the cloud. I had some iTunes issues last night and couldn't turn on match - I'll do it when I get home. Glad to hear everything is still there and sorry to scare you!

    There is NO WAY I would delete my music. You sure are trusting with your music library. I have mine on my external, backed-up with Time Machine and in the cloud with iMatch.
