How do I stop duplicates from downloading?

My iTunes library on my Mac is syncing transfers from my iPad and for some reason after the sync, my Mac started downloading some of those purchases from iTunes automatically. What gives? Do I have to download them in order to delete the duplicates or can I stop them from downloading? How can I prevent this from happening in the future?

You can't stop the download, only pause it. Let it finish.

    Hi iprover,
      Let me first say that I am NO EXPERT with anything Apple and really have only started looking into this iCloud stuff a few hours ago because I'm trying to help my mom free up some space on her iCloud. But anyway, here's what I'm learning and what I THINK might be happening to you.
    Also, if any Apple support people (do they browse the forums to dish out helpful hints?) or people who probably know infinitely more than me about this stuff, please do chime in and confirm / correct my statements!
    This is what I gather.
    iCloud for Windows is set up with a local folder (let's call it "C:\Users\Administrator\Pictures\iCloud Photos\My Photo Stream") where iCloud will store photos uploaded to the Photo Stream. This will allow you to view your Photo Stream photos on your PC.
    This does not mean that this is a PC backup of your Photo Stream photos, but just a way to view your Photo Stream from your PC. That being said, the general Photo Stream rules apply: 1. No videos are on the photo-stream, and 2. Photos on the Photo Stream will be removed after ~30 days and/or after hitting the Photo Stream limit of 1000 photos.
    My guess is that the iCloud Windows App will delete photos from the local folder that are older than ~30 days and/or delete all but the most recent 1000 items if the 1000-item limit is reached.
    That is a scary thought! I really hope you did not lose all your pictures, but my guess is that the iCloud local folder is NOT meant for backup but instead is the iCloud Windows App's sandbox for updating and managing Photo Stream photos.
    All that being said, I'd say it's important to back up your photos in a separate folder not related to the iCloud local folder.

  • I preordered an album in error that is scheduled to download next week.  How do I stop it from downloading?  I no longer want to purchase it.

    I preordered an album in error that is scheduled to download next week.  How do I stop it from downloading?  I no longer want to purchase it.

    Downloading a pre-ordered item
    When a pre-order item becomes available, you will receive an email letting you know your pre-order is available for download.
    If you've enabled iTunes to automatically download prepurchased content, then your pre-order content may already be downloaded to your library. If not, simply click the download link provided within your email notification, and your pre-order content will begin to download. Alternatively you can use the "Check for Available Downloads" feature in iTunes on your computer by choosing Store > Check for Available Downloads to begin downloading your pre-order.
    I would contact iTunes if clicking on the link did not results in it downloading to your iPod.

  • How do I stop iTunes from downloading multiple copies of a TV show?

    This is driving me nuts.  Using Doctor Who as the example, for each episode released, iTunes tries to download two HD copies and one SD copy.  I don't need the SD, nor do I need to duplicate HD.  Yet I can't stop it from trying to download them when I start iTunes, nor can I figure out how to permanently remove or cancel a pending download.
    Anyone have any idea how to stop this?
    -- edit ---
    Didn't have much luck matching search terms for this before posting, yet after posting links came up referencing other queries in which people asked how to stop iTunes from downloading the HD and SD versions of a TV show.  Consensus seems to be that iTunes will always download each version, which is just plain silly.  Haven't seen any explaination, however, on why it then tries to download a second HD copy.

    That is correct.  This is the way it is ALL HD purchases come with the SD version.

  • How do I stop things from downloading onto my iPhone and iPad?

  • How do i stop Mail from downloading all my old messages without deleting them

    Hello there,
        i've just bought a new 13 inch macbook pro, and i'm very happy with it. Being sort of new to apple i still have some problems though.
    the main one concerns mail:   How do I prevent my laptop from downloading thousands of old messages i had stored on my gmail account?
    let me be clearer: i set mail up and it instantly started downloading tons of old messages that i don't want stored on my mac, since it only has 128gb storage, but i'd still like to be able to look for them in case I needed to.  so i don't want to permanently erase them, get rid of them here to save some space.
    is that possible? and if yes how?
    I also have an other problem with Mail and it's the fact that gmail doesn't let me send pages files...it says it could be a dangerous file so it stops me.  
    any solutions?
    thanks to all of you

    Unchecking Mail will do nothing at all.
    And as Gmail is an Imap account it will download all mail in the account to the client.
    If this is unwanted behaviour use a different email system (a POP system) or remove the mail from the Gmail server.

  • How do I stopi-Tunes from downloading songs on my device which I did not order and which I then have to delete?

    How can I stop i-Tunes from downloading songs on my device which I did not order and which I then have to delete because I do not want it?

    Does swiping/dragging across the tracks from right-to-left (or possibly left-to-right depending upon the iOS version) in the Downloads tab in the iTunes store app stop them downloading ?
    If it's the U2 album Songs of Innocence then  : http://itunes.com/soi-remove
    If it's a different album/tracks and you didn't buy them, and nobody else has access to your account and/or devices and bought them, then contact iTunes Support :  http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page

  • I don't want windows 8.1 to automatically download how do i stop it from downloading

    How do i stop windows 8.1 from automatically downloading. I have tried to do it and it still keeps popping up. I don't understand some of the computer lingo so can you please respond in plain english what it is i should do on keeping 8.1 from downloading?

    Hi,
    Are you running Win 8 and don't want to upgrade to Win 8.1?
    Please see here for three methods to stop the Win 8.1 upgrade notification.
    You will probably need to use methods two or three unless you are running Win 8 Pro.

  • HT1688 How can I stop photos from downloading from my camera roll into photo folders on my Iphone 4S. They have been downloading on the phone for 2 days.

    I took some photos from my camera roll and added them into seperate folders on my Iphone 4S and only some of the photos have downloaded and the rest of the pictures in all of the folders have been downloading for the past 2 days. Even when connected to WiFi it does not stop downloading the pictures into the seperate folders. How can I finish the downloading of the pictures or how can I stop the downloading and try adding them to the folders again?

    Your backup contains photos and videos from the camera roll, if you did not sync after that, use the latest backup to restore from: iTunes: About iOS backups and Backing Up, updating, and restoring your iPhone and iPod touch software

  • How do i stop movies from downloading to my ipad 2

    I just got a new iPad 2 and I wanted to download all of my movies from my iPad 1 through the cloud. Unfortunately I pressed more than one movie to download at the same time, and nothing is happening after numerous hours of attempted downloading except a message that says I can't download at this time and I need to retry (which I've done, to no avail). Is there any way to stop these movies from downloading? I want to cancel them all so I can try downloading them one at a time. I've pressed the pause button, by there is nowhere to actually "cancel" a download that I have found so far. Anyone know the answer?

    Selected under the Photos tab for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes.

  • How do I stop itunes from downloading a very large apps that I downloaded direct to my iphone?

    To get around my 5GB limit for internet service, I download a very large (350MB) dictionary app directly to my iphone using a wireless website run by a merchant in town. Now every time I run itunes, it wants to download the app. Is there any way I can stop itunes from attempting the download?

    Some types of issues, such as that one, can't be resolved by the volunteer support here. If I think a request can be answered in the boards but was posted in the wrong part of them, I'll just ignore the fact it's in the wrong place.

  • How do I stop mail from downloading ALL my messages?

    How do I tell mail not to download ALL my messages but rather only the recent ones that are relevant?   I have 4 gmails and a regular imap account.  If mail downloads all my messages it's going to waste 30 GB at least.
    Thanks.

  • How do I stop IOS7 from downloading onto my ipad?

    I just found my Ipad that i lost many months ago. And when i turned it on, it decided to download IOS7 without me doing anything. I strongly dislike IOS7 and I don't want my Ipad to have it. The download is already 24% along and i paused it by turning off the Wi-fi. Is there a way that i can stop the download ?

    You can't stop it now.
    You have to restore the iPad to get rid of it. Immeditaley after restorng, make sure you turn off WiFi. When WiFi is off. Now you can restore your backup. Make sure you are fast enough to turn off WiFi. I once had the update download just seconds after restoring.
    Once the restore is complete, fill the iPad so that only 2.5GB or so is left of free space. That will prevent the update from downloading once again while you are on WiFi.
