Unless you have a backup somewhere (like i Tunes Match or an external hard drive), the song you just accidentally deleted could be unrecoverable if i Tunes has also deleted it from your i Phone.This is because syncing songs and other files via i Tunes is a one-way process.
Then you can simply select the item in the downloads list and hit the “Delete” key to remove it.I know this is only a minor annoyance but it's happened so often that it really bugs me. It's possibly the most annoying updater ever, isn't it.Is there a way to say "I don't ever want i Tunes" and therefore save me tens of man seconds a year? I reckon Apple to it on purpose to annoy Windows users.I listen to podcasts, but almost always on my i Phone (by downloading them on the i Phone directly) and almost never on my computer through i Tunes. However, any time I open i Tunes, it tries to automatically download new podcast episodes. I tried plugging in my i Phone, going to the Podcasts tab, and unchecking Sync Podcasts, but this resulted in a dialog box asking if I'm sure I do not want to sync podcasts, and informing me that if I continue, all existing podcasts on my i Phone will be deleted. With this change, i Tunes will never download new episodes for any of your podcasts.If you wish to change this setting only for specific podcasts, you can do so by selecting the specific podcast in the "Settings for:" dropdown and/or by changing the defaults.
