“I am using my iTunes Library on my Mac OS X Lion and was trying to free up the hard disk space by deleting some of my old podcasts. I had a huge podcasts collection that I wanted to backup and to remove few unwanted ones, therefore I went to settings to enable auto-delete feature that would delete the older / played podcast episodes. Unfortunately, I accidentally set that feature as the default settings and within a 5 minute period, my Podcast section went from 10+ GB down to less than 2GB. Many of these podcasts are very important to me. I know that I can re-download them, but it would take a lot of time and patience. Does anyone know if there is a way to recover deleted podcasts from iTunes.”
