Back Up Your Media Licenses

If you do choose to copy-protect your files, you need to preserve a copy of your media licenses in case you ever need to reinstall Windows XP. To export the key from your existing Windows XP machine, open Media Player, select Tools | License Management, and click Backup Now.

The licenses will be copied to the desktop as files with .bak extensions. Note that they may be hidden if you don't allow Explorer to show hidden files. To import them, place the files on the desktop and click Restore Now.
