    You can usually go to the purchases tab in your mac app store and redownload from there.

    But at the moment, PB3 is for some reason not available there any more. Maybe a new build is coming, a DP9 and PB4 or perhaps a golden master.

    It seems a bit too soon for this though.

    Note that DP1, DP5 and DP7 are still available in the purchases tab if you redeemed codes for those, so I don't really know what is going on with PB3.

    A lot of people had PB 3 disappear while they were downloading the day it came out. And when they tried to restart, the release wasn't there anymore. Very strange indeed. Is DP 3 showing for others still, or did Apple remove it all together? I am on DP 8, so I can't check the status.

    Looks like 10.10 PB3 has been removed at this point. I wonder what will happen now if you try to restore a Mac running PB3 via the recovery partition.

    Got the exact same issue yesterday. If finally decided to install the beta (had applied for the beta program but not installed it). The App Store got stuck on the screen where the redeem code is applied to an account and I had to close it (it did say the code was applied I think but no download was starting after several minutes).

    If I try to use the code again it says it has already been used, but there is nothing in the purchases section of the App Store.

    Not only was it removed from my purchases tab, but also my backup of the installer got corrupted. Luckily I was able to fix it from a time machine backup, after disconnecting the internet (thereby stopping the mac app store from corrupting it again), I made a copy, put it in a locked dmg, password protected it in a zip file and then burned it to blu-ray recordable disc. Twice! Lets see if apple can corrupt that!

    I am also having this issue (where PB3 is not in my App Store Purchases and where I can't redeem my code again [due to it already having been redeemed]). Luckily I've archived the PB1 installer. Still though, I'd like to download a PB3 installer to have as well. Someone should let us know when this is resolved or any insight as to why this is happening.

    Glad to read it isn't just me. I wanted to download Beta 3 from the App Store, but suddenly the link disappeared.

    The issue is still present. Something must be going on.

    I was about to make an 'erase and reinstall' with OS X Yosemite PB3, but luckily I saw the missing Yosemite PB3 in my purchases in App Store... Think I'll have to wait then. Maybe PB4 or something else coming soon, as some of you have mentioned! :)

    Edit: Anyway - so I did the erase and reinstall, but when I got to the part of reinstalling Yosemite on the OS X Utilities-screen, the following message showed up: 'Reinstall OS X Yosemite failed to open, try again later' - or something like that. Tried a couple of times but it didn't work out, so I went on and reinstalled Mavericks from the Internet Recovery... feels almost as being pulled back to the 'stone age' after getting used to Yosemite - can't wait to install it again.

    With the recent release of the Yosemite Mail update, I don't think PB 4 will arrive for at least a week.
