Apple Confirms Music Deletion Bug In iTunes

Some had insisted it was user error, but Apple’s announcement of a patch would suggest that the software was really deleting users’ music files and replacing them with DRM copies.

In an extremely small number of cases users have reported that music files saved on their computer were removed without their permission. 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 iTunes early next week which includes additional safeguards. If a user experiences this issue they should contact AppleCare.
