I want to go back to High Sierra from Mojave. Is there a way to still download this?

High Sierra is no longer listed in the new Mac App Store if you have already installed Mojave. It looks like you'll need to do what was recommended by member "chrfr" unless you have an image of High Sierra on a flash drive.

THIS is why one does both of the following:
1. Create a bootable cloned backup of your current install BEFORE upgrading.
and
2. Keep a library of previously-released OS installers.

Thank you! This worked. I made multiple backups of this. This saved my behind. Thanks again.
It started working for me some time overnight so I guess the error I saw when I tried yesterday wasn't permanent.

Trying to open these on windows 10. Always says Unavailable in US when opening in iTunes.

We need to remember that humans will never be cautious or take preventative measures, My friend!

I get: The address wasn’t understood
I've recently found a couple of guides on MacPaw and StellarInfo by Darina Stavniychuk. Is it necessary to use CleanMyMac X or any other similar software to get rid of the unwanted files?
I just tried the posted link and it worked for me, so it is still a good URL.
You could try Step 4 in the link posted in Post 2 above.

I have never used CleanMyMac X and I do not intend to ever use it. Maybe CleanMyMac X may have caused problems by deleting something that should not have been deleted.
