Wfen i restored my mac to factory settings having upgraded from os x10.7.3 to 10.8 i lost imovie garage band and iphoto. are they just hidden and can be retrieved and how? or not,
They should show up in the Mac App Store "Purchased" section. If not, try signing in with your Apple ID to the Mac App Store and check that same "Purchased" section again.
Best of Luck!
those apps came with the operating system and so they dont appear in my purchases since i didn't do that manually but stillgreat i've seen only apps i had purchased previously but not the imovie, garage band and iphoto.
