Ok seeing as they went out of business i sent an email to who are actually the same compoany just under a different name (i'm not sure if they bought it) actually they said that they cannot help cause that version is no longer supported. they suggested to upgrade to a different app which they just happend to currently have and be selling :). Any way to give you the key i cannot but i can tell you how to get one..
PS. this is normally illigal as its called pirating. It involves the illigal acquiring of a product key or crack. Seeing as the patent has expired and there is no longer an accountable company who you can sue. This also means that there is no company to sue you as well. :)

1.) go to
2.) on the buttom right of the page there is a search engine called underground search
3.) enter the name of your program there (e.g PC BACKUP) and select one of the engines from the drop down list
4.) It will search that site and give you a link to download the necessary files that are needed to patch or crack the app.
5.) follow the instruction included with the download

THAT IT!!!..
Ps. Fixya .. Does not support pirated or illigal materials. I have posted this on my own accord without the knowledge or permission of fixya and their associates. I have posted this information based on the situation presented here and the inability of the creators of the program to help. It is also based on the fact that the creators have reliquenished their rights to this particular piece of software.

Now that Stompsoft is out of business, you might contact Migo for help.

However, I have the same version of Backup MyPC as you and I lost my serial number when my machine broke and I needed a new key.

They were unable to help.

Recover data from my backup

Which operating system and what data do you need to recover ???
You can create a backup disk with Microsoft Windows 7 or any other version of the operating system.
This disk will contain the files, programs and settings that you chose to save during the backup operation.
Yet, this disk does little good for you if you do not know how to retrieve that backup data.
Luckily, Microsoft offers a simple process for restoring this data to your operating system.
Even a basic computer user should have no problem restoring her backed up data from a backup disk.

Insert your Windows 7 installation DVD into your optical drive.
Reboot your computer and press a key to boot from the disk once prompted.
Click "Repair your computer."
Choose the hard drive that contains your copy of Windows 7.

Click "Windows complete PC restore."
The latest backup data will be selected by default. I
n the event you wish to restore earlier backup data, press "restore from a different backup."
Click "Next."
Your computer will now restore the backup data into Microsoft Windows 7.

Windows 7 will burn me a backup and rescue but opens them and other things to file instead of run , I think its internal and bad windows 7 . Posible not formatting right as it will not recognize any data...

Windows 7 will not open files or anything else that you have backed up. The backup is to RESTORE files and programs that have gotten damaged due to a hard drive crash. You want to save things to a cd/dvd just use file copy not backup. Like i said backup is NOT for file storage. Hope this helps

I hve just upgraded to Windows 7. how will i be able to retrieve and access my old / backup files? also, where can i download the full version of Microsoft Office 2007 for free?

1. It depends on whether Windows 7 can process your backups -- what software did you use to make the backups? Will that software run under Windows 7?

2. Free download from Microsoft's web-site: -- but, you will need a "license-key" to install and use the downloaded software.

Restoring files after using the Backup utility.

1. Plug in the USB drive that contains the data.
2. On the XMB go to Settings then System Settings
3. Go to Back Up Utility like before but
4. Choose Restore rather than Back Up
5. The PS3 does the rest

You can have the PS3 delete the data file from the USB drive by choosing Delete Backup Data.
