Re: will Software be restored along with files???

Mozy can backup program files if you select them for backup, however Mozy cannot restore those files in a way that they would be functional as there are many Windows system dependencies that Mozy does not have access to. You would need to reinstall the program. If you have already activated a Microsoft Office license with Microsoft then you can simply login to your account and download it again. If you never activated it with Microsoft then there are additional ways to recover it according to Microsoft. If you experience any issues with these methods you would want to contact Microsoft support for further assistance.

Like @remymozy has mentioned, you will not be able to restore Microsoft Office as a program but only the data you created with Microsoft Office, only if these file were selected for backup initially on the previous computer.

 

Please post any questions or comments.

 

 

Thank you,

@SallyNeil I don't see a restore setup under your account yet.

 

Are you having trouble with your restore?
