If iTunes Match recognizes your tracks, it'll automatically mirror them in the cloud; otherwise, you'll be able to manually upload them. If you ever have a devastating system crash, you'll be able to just slurp them all down again."</em></p><p><img height="382" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1313769858.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="565" /></p><p>Ah the good old days, when you could back up your library to CDs or DVDs, at least the good old days if you have upgraded to iTunes 10.4. This feature was dropped, so your only options are to backup to a hard drive or some cloud service. Everything is going to the cloud these days. I never used this feature, but I hate it on principle when things are taken away as an option. What are your thoughts about this being removed?</p>
