    Upgraded to the latest version of itunes and all the music i downloaded from apple music ( I subscribe), shows up, but needs to be redownloaded. For me thats over 6000 files.
    Is there a way to download all or do i have to click on the cloud icon constantly?
    This is on my windows PC.

    Switch to song view, select all songs (ctrl-A), right-click on the list and download. But if you had previously downloaded them, you first might want to check what happened to the old files. Just upgrading iTunes should not delete any songs.

    You could restore your iTunes Library from your backup. All :apple:Music tracks are in it under iTunes:iTunes Media: Apple Music.

    Interesting! I wouldn't have thought you could do that with Apple Music downloaded tracks.

    To the OP, sorry, but I gotta ask: why on earth do you need 6000 Apple Music tracks downloaded?

    That is where the actual files are downloaded and stored. It is likely this folder somehow got deleted on the OP's install so the OP had to use the on-line library to get the music back.
