Hi everyone,

I am trying to reformat my harddrive, because it's very slow and there's just too much stuff on my computer.
I have backed up all my personal files already.
However, I have one application on my PC that I would like to keep, but can't find the program CD anymore.

Is there a way to preserve one single application and temporarily move it (and its application settings) to an external harddrive
without the need of reinstalling the whole thing?

Thanks so much!!

I'm sorry, but that's not possible to preserve the application and its settings without the ability to reinstall. If the software was registered, then you should be able to contact adobe and get a replacement cd.
