Hey guys, long time no harass. Here's the low down! Several years ago I bought into the Windows 7 student upgrade deal through my mums university. Worked fine for aches and aches till the machine died, I lost interest and the problem faded into obscurity. Now I've got the machine working and I've got a problem with Windows activation. I wrote the product key on the CD and to be blunt, my hand writing is pretty pish. However I've tried every realistic permutation of what could be considered wrong and I'm having no luck. Embarrassing, but hey... I've tried to access the Microsoft digital river to try find my product key but it's claiming that the account no longer exists. (I am going to contact them, but I'm assuming this will come to nothing.) Since leaving uni as well, I am unable to access her emails and recover the confirmation email or order ID. Now, my next most realistic option seems as so: I am able to recover a great deal of information from my previous Windows installation on the SSD with File Scavenger. Is it possible to use a program such as MagicJellyBean to scour these recovered files for my product key from the previous installation? It's a totally ridiculous situation and makes me boke a bit with cringe, but I'm desperate enough to ask on here! Cheers folks.
