Backing up and restoring licenses

If you plan to reinstall or upgrade the operating system and if you retain your protected files, you should back up your licenses before reinstalling or upgrading. You should also periodically back up your licenses to a floppy disk in case they become lost or corrupted. By default, the Player prompts you to back up your licenses approximately two weeks after you acquire a new one.
