Hi everyone,
I want to redownload macOS Sierra for a clean reinstall. How to do this when installer isn't present in Purchases in App Store or in the /Applications/ folder of the Mac?

I own developer account and I'm running macOS Sierra 10.12 Beta 2.

Thanks for answers in advance

I had to download it from a third-party source, then I made a USB installer for backup.

There is a bug preventing the install app from appearing in the App Store.
Solution is to get a new redemption code. This time, save the install app to another location first, so you can reuse it later on.

Yeah, make a bootable USB and then you'll have it if something goes wrong.

Apple seem to have fixed it. It has now reappeared in the purchases tab in the mac app store.
