    Default Beatport re-download after a few months!

    I bought a few track months ago, my HDD now went bye~bye~ so I wanted to re-download them.
    The are now listed in the tab "completed downloads", but I can't download them.

    Does it mean I have to re-buy them?

    Usually they give you two tries with every track. I would check if you have or not, you may be in luck dude

    Well...that sucks because I can click on the Download buttons for those songs (it's greyed out).

    Does anyone have a strategy to secure his bought tracks despite saving them on multiple drives?

    did you write a support-ticket?
    ive gone through your struggle already two times, and never had a problem restoring the tracks from beatport through the support.

    beatport isnt that serious in concerning this problem, other than iT., where you can only restore your tracks once :/

    put them on disc also so if the worst happens, you still have the tracks. I back up our stuff on a portable HD and on DVDs

    Yeah but why limit the download-possibility in general?

    I would find it more comfortable if a track could be downloaded anytime after buying it.

    That's one reason why I use Gmail instead of Outlook.
    If I toss my HDD out of the window (or it fall from a height of 15"), np, because everything is online.

    Ask them to re-download the tracks and they nicely will put it on your basket again, that's what I did and it worked.

    Yeh, I've had this problem.. some of the tracks aren't transferable atall.. ie. now i've changed to mac, I had to re-purchase some of my favorites..
    Unfortunately, looks like you'll have to rebuy yours completely. luckily for me, there were only one or two which were protected. I don't know how theyr protected either, seems clever to me! can't even burn them to CD

    Other than than, beatport is my lifeblood
