After downloading and installing Lion, I cannot find the original installation icon on my computer.

Is there someway to reinstall Lion even thoguh the purchased installer does not appear to be anywhere on my computer?

Go back to the App Store, hold the Option button and hit purchases and click on the image and download it again. No charge only usage of your broadband allowance. Then suggest burning it to a thumb drive or DVD,

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!
