Recently my motherboard crashed so I removed the harddrive and put it as a slave in another computer. While attempting to get Outlook working I messed up Office and then to further cause more grief I did a restore and backup. I realize now that this was a major mistake but I'm not looking for what I did wrong I'm looking for ways to fix the issue. What I ended up with was back a computer back to square one with a trial version of Office. Well we were running the full version so I'm thinking I have the license key for the full version but this is not the case. I purchased the existing assets of a business 3 years ago and assumed they had provided the licenses to all the software loaded on the computers. Evidently not the case. So my question is - is it possible to retrieve the full version from the backup somehow or call microsoft to get the key?
