    Mountain Lion Download interruption
    Hi, I tried downloading ML to my iMac and after 2 hours I needed to leave and shut down my computer before the download was completed. I clicked the "stop download" button on the APP store site. This morning I was emailed the receipt for my purchase of the OS. Will I be able to either-- resume the download where it left off ?, will I be able to start the download from the beginning? or will I need to buy it all over again and redo the download from scratch ? Not sure really how long it takes to download the update...Any advice is appreciated !

    Thanks.

    As long as you log on to the Mac App Store with your same Apple ID, you'll be able to download ML again without having to pay for it once more. As far as how long it takes to download, that depends on your internet speed.

    You might also do some research on how to create a bootable USB flash drive after you download ML and prior to installing it. Very handy to have. You'll need an 8 GB flash drive.
