    Hi I downloaded lion thinking it would reset my computer but it turned out to be an upgrade. I went back to reset my computer it reset and now I have no lion copy which i paid for to upgrade. Does anybody think apple could email it to me or has it been emailed to you. thanks.

    If you paid for it in the app store, I would think you could just download it again.

    agreed it should either be in your purchased section or should say installed or installing when you hover over it.. as long as it doesn't say the price still, I'm sure you are fine and did not lose it just misplaced it.

    Lion takes a while to download and doesn't show up in applications until the download is done. Make sure you back up the "install os x lion.app" before running the installer as it deletes it after the install and you might want to have it around so you don't have to sit through another download.
