How to Re-download Podcast (partial or full)


There are several reasons you need to re-download your podcast series. First, probably you moved your Media File location in iTunes (intentionally or accidentally), deleted the file, or want to merge old collection into new folder or drive.

I most cases, user changed setting in iTunes to different folder and when he/she's trying to play or sync, it comes out with exclamation mark "!" in the left side of each series.

Some people said, just un-subscribe and then subscribe again. Well, yeah, that's easy, but it will take a long time and wasting bandwidth. There's an easy way to do this.

Things You'll Need

  • iTunes
  • iPod, iTouch, iPhone
  • PC or Mac
  • Run iTunes and let everything ready before you do the next steps. Go to the local Podcast control and open it.

  • Choose which Podcast series you want to re-download. Delete the entire episode in that series. Minimize that series by clicking the triangle. Should be pointing to the right.

  • PC: hold your SHIFT key and CLICK the triangle to maximize using your mouse.
