Recently my hard drive crashed. Had a company fix the problem, they were able to recover all my files from old hard drive. I can't find my ilife 06 disc though. Is there a way apple keeps on file that I did purchase it and make available a download for this sort of situation. I appreciate any help I can get.

Thanks

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Ask Apple as this site has no connection with the company.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Did you register iLife 06 when you purchased it? If so, Apple may have a record of it. However, I'm not certain if they would replace it for you without some charge. In any event, as harry pointed out, contact Apple customer support and ask.

a. Yes, they keep a record of what you buy from them.
b. No, they will not provide you with a new copy. That was nearly five years ago.

My advice would be to find a RETAIL used copy either from the members of your local Mac User Group or on whichever is the most trusted of the "flea market" sites (Ebay, Craig's List, local such sites etc) and just buy it. The cost will serve as a lesson to carefully file away software purchases henceforth.

If and when you update to a newer machine, of course, you'll have a whole new version of iLife to play with.
