Roxio Easy CD Creator Classic Version 6

by jlippincott / August 19, 2006 5:39 AM PDT

Roxio Easy CD Creator Classic Version 6 was installed on my computer when I got it but I wasn't given the CD for it. I need to format my hard drive so this program is going to be removed from my computer. Is there a way of backing this program up on a CD so that I can use it again when I finished? I'd rather not have to pay money for a newer version of the program. The old one works just fine.

Unlikely. Here's why.

Back in 1995 Microsoft introduced the registry, shared dlls and more features that make software backups nearly impossible from the installed files.

While it can be debated and has been if this was progress, the fallout is that we can backup files, but rarely programs.

download if from your computer maker's website

What is your computer make & model?

Major computer makers like Dell should give you this program on a CD, but is is sometimes overlooked on a disc with some other programs. Did you carefully check your CD's yet?

Many computer makers have the original software available for download on its drivers/downloads webpage for your particular model. Usually you have to enter the computer's serial number or service tag for this. (I think this is your best option).

Another option is that some programs have their own serial number/product key/activation code that you can save before you delete everything. Download the trial version from the software maker, and then enter your seral number when you run the program for the first time to enable full functionality.

Let us know what you find.
