    Can I re-download iWork for free after the clean installation of Yosemite?

    Context: I have read elsewhere on the web that users have lost their purchase history on the Appstore after a clean install and can no longer download iWork or any other apps that they had either purchased or were eligible for free download.

    Your purchase history is tied to your Apple ID. When you launch the App Store, just click Purchases and sign-in. All your past purchases will then re-appear.

    Thank you very much for the reply.

    I have just upgraded to Yosemite and migrated my application from the backup. iWork has been imported and everything is fine so far. Also, my purchase history is intact on Appstore.
