According to a report at <a target="_blank" href="http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/portable-media/zune-fact-music-will-be-redownloadable-213796.php">Gizmodo</a>, Microsoft will allow you to re-download tracks purchased from the Zune Marketplace up to five times (plus a few more if you contact tech support). This is unlike Apple's <a target="_blank" href="http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93050">&quot;purchase once - download once&quot; policy</a> (though we've heard that if you beg really hard, they do let you download purchased tracks a second time). Whichever way you look at it, Microsoft's policy is sure to please the 99% of us who have a habit of reminding ourselves to backup, but never do. Yes, you know who you are. :-)
