    If I have a valid product key but no install media and my hard drive dies,
    can I reinstall Office 2007 from a backup copy of my MSOCache folder?

    Possibly someone else will give you the definitive answer, but this support
    page may help.

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924616

    "Local Install Source is a Setup feature that copies the installation
    source files from the 2007 Office program installation media, such as the
    2007 Office program CD, to the Msocache folder. This folder is a hidden
    folder on the local hard disk drive."

    "The Local Install Source feature is installed so that you do not have to
    insert the CD during the following Setup operations:

    * The Detect and repair operation
    * The Demand install operation
    * The Maintenance mode setup operation
    * The installation of service packs and updates"

    As I interpret this support page, nothing indicates it's purpose is for a
    full install - just repair, install additonal components (again not full
    install), service packs, etc

    IF you have one of the following Office 2007 suites and your valid key,
    this is a current download location.

    * Office 2007 Downloads - Must have Product Key

    Office Professional 2007 - Office Home and Student 2007 - Office Small
    Business 2007

    If you have a valid retail product key then you can download the
    genuine Microsoft Office 2007 from here:

    <http://www.microsoft.com/office/downloads/>

    Your genuine product key will work with the above downloads.
