I now run OS X 10.9.5 on my office laptop, which is monitored by my company. App Store alerted me about Yosemite, and I chose to download and install it. After download completed, I got a notification saying that my company does not support Yosemite and the installation was terminated.

Now Yosemite shows up in App Store as "DOWNLOADED" as shown below, and I get notification asking me to install it every day. How can I remove the downloaded file and/or stop receiving this notification?

  • @Tetsujin Thanks for the comment. I actually want to delete the downloaded files locally and don't plan to install it anymore. Mar 6 '15 at 21:30
  • I can't test, as I have nothing DL'ing right now, but the intermediate location is apparently ~/Library/Application Support/App Store/ Once fully downloaded, they go to Applications As far as the notification itself, in App Store, I think you're stuck with that - I was, til I bit the bullet.

  • Then the problem becomes there's nothing but updatejournal.plist lying in this folder... Mar 6 '15 at 21:42
  • The Yosemite file is in your Applications folder, named Install OS X Yosemite.app You can delete it.

You do not have to Install Yosemite.

In your case just open the Applications folder navigate to the "Install OS X Yosemite.app" and Delete it.
