Will updating itunes erase my music

Apple today acknowledged i Tunes users who claim the software deleted their music files, saying it will issue an update to i Tunes next week that includes additional safeguards.

He was allegedly told by an Apple representative that his files were deleted without his permission when he signed up for Apple Music.

Pinkstone says the Apple rep told him Apple Music replaced his songs with cloud-based versions from its digital collection, deleting the originals in the process.

We're taking these reports seriously as we know how important music is to our customers and our teams are focused on identifying the cause.

We have not been able to reproduce this issue, however, we're releasing an update to i Tunes early next week which includes additional safeguards.

All software programs, i Tunes included, are vulnerable to becoming corrupted.

If an installation file for i Tunes is deleted or changed, it could stop working properly or stop working altogether.

Navigate to the folder or drive where you'd like to place the backup, right-click and select the "Paste" option to create your i Tunes library backup. Open the Start menu and click "Control Panel." Click the "Uninstall a program" link and select i Tunes from the list of installed programs.

Click the "Uninstall" button and follow the prompts to uninstall it.

The issue, which has persisted since the launch of Apple Music last year, resurfaced when i Tunes user James Pinkstone published a blog post last week titled, "Apple Music stole my music.

No, seriously." The post, which went viral, detailed how Pinkstone's library of 122GB of music suddenly disappeared.
