Replace some lost iTunes Store purchases at lower cost Internet
Have you ever lost a couple (or even hundreds) of your purchased iTunes Store songs, and you really don't want to pay $0.99 per copy to get them back? Well, if that's the case, head on down to the iTunes Plus page in the store, and click on Upgrade My Libary.

Innterestingly, even if you no longer have the song you want in your library, the iTunes Store still gives you the ability to upgrade it. So if that song is really lost, it's like getting it replaced for only $.30. Yes, the library is limited and slim right now because it only contains EMI songs, but once it gets bigger, this is your ticket to re-obtaining some of your lost iTunes music at a lower cost.

[robg adds: Apple apparently has an unwritten 'one time only' replacement policy: if you lose your entire library, you can email them and they may authorize you to re-download all of your purchases. More on the process in this thread at lifehacker.]

This is the biggest reason why I recently upgraded. I don't know how many tunes I have lot but I am not one of the fortunate ones that apple actually helped.

Has anyone seen a way to upgrade only a subset of songs, rather than everything that is listed? I thought that maybe removing the songs I didn't want to upgrade from my directory temporarily would fool the mass upgrade, and only upgrade the songs which I want; but, apparently, that is not going to work.
