    When i activate Win 7 with phone activation is it possible to backup this activation and put it back into a fresh installed Win 7?

    If yes, which files i have to backup?

    From another post on the forums but I can't remember where or who - Sorry - trying to help not claim credit.

    "Install Windows 7 as normal. When prompted for a key, enter nothing.

    Backup the two files listed below first - the method to restore only is listed :-

    Stop the Software Protection Service (Run> services.msc> select Protection Service Software> Click the Stop Service on the Right

    Navigate to C: \ Windows \ system32 \ spp \ tokens \ pkeyconfig

    Take ownership of pkeyconfig.xrm-ms (may appear as just pkeyconfig) and give yourself full permissions to it. (Right click on it> Properties> Security Tab> Advanced> Owner tab> Edit> Administrators Click on> OK> OK> OK> OK> Yes then Right Click again on the file, Properties> Security Tab, click on EDIT> click on Administrators, Full Control: Allow> OK> OK)

    Delete pkeyconfig. Replace with your backup pkeyconfig

    Navigate to C: \ Windows \ ServiceProfiles \ NetworkService \ AppData \ Roaming \ Microsoft \ SoftwareProtectionPlatform

    Delete tokens.dat. Replace with your backup tokens.dat

    Now start back up the Software Protection Service.

    You can now register using your license key [/I]

    I made my own tokens restorer for personal use :D It's just a batch file that backs up product key with a VBS and tokens like PMR
