    Hi,

    I loaded Mountain Lion but deleted the install App right away. I kinda want to store it on a thumb drive. So when I click to load it again from the Mac App Store it shows a message that ML is already installed and if I want to load it anyway. What will happen if I choose "Yes"? Will it automatically start the install process or just download the app?

    I really don't want to risk an installation over my functioning system. Thanks.

    It'll redownload and it may launch the installer, but you can just quit once the "welcome" screen appears (i.e. before it actually installs anything).

    Thanks. I guess I'll try it tomorrow.

    What can I say? I'm an offline backup kinda guy (just in case anyone was wondering).

    You don't have to justify anything; I have the whole thing on a USB stick :)
