Which programs? Where you just creating a restore point and opened a program requesting to re-enter the license/serial #? If you didn't uninstall the programs all serial numbers/license/product keys are stored in registry.

Hello, I should make the problem clearer, sorry. The system I have, has two sata harddrives, I fresh install of xp pro , and loaded several programs. Then i discovered that the boot partition was located on one drive and windows/programs located on the second drive.

Now I want to reloaded xp and then do a restore of a backup on one drive. This seemed to work however like i mentions before , now all the programs are asking for serial numbers. The only problem
I dont have the serial number for one of this programs.

So, the questions is can i recover this with the full backup, I did not have a floppy drive ready and the backup mention that a diskette could not be made..

I can back up to the orginal disks and do another backup

thanks, bob
