    I did a bit of a search and didn't find an answer. But I am sure its been asked or written somewhere that I missed.

    Lets say I spend the $79.99 and download a App. Its now on my hard drive. What if my hard drive crashes? I buy a new computer? Can I switch my purchase to a new hard drive or a new computer? Thank you.

    If this happens for the Mac App Store, then there is no issue because all your purchases are saved in your account and you can re-download them yourself.

    If this happens for the iOS App Store, then you have to e-mail iTunes support and ask to re-download your purchases. iOS App Store does not directly store your purchases. It just stores your purchase history.

    thank you neko girl for your help.

    I did a search before I posted as i mentioned. I am guessing your search skills are better than mine. But thank you for the link, I won't ask anymore questions.

    There's nothing wrong with asking questions. I just posted a link to your answer.

    :confused: iTunes Music Store does this, but if you try to buy an app from the App Store you already purchased it'll just re-download it. I know I've deleted apps on my phone and redownloaded them just fine.

    Not so for music/video.
