    this might be the wrong forum for this, but i've a question

    recently i moved, discovering that all of my original disks and documentation for photoshop had apparently "moved" before i did.....personally, i think that somebody helped them out of the house, but in any event, they're gone....

    so i ran a search on my system, found everything related to photoshop, and now wonder: if i want to make a backup of the application and its plug ins, what's the minimum i can put on a cd or two to accomplish this?

    Which version of Photoshop did you have ?
    Have you wrote down the PS serial number from the startup splash screen or the help about screen ?

    I don't think you are going to be able to copy an installed program on a cd and install it later. Not in Windows. If you had a Macintosh it would be a different story. Is your copy registered?

    You should be able to get a replacement CD from Adobe.
    I'd make sure I wrote down the Serial somewhere safe.
