    Hi there...

    I have both of these, bought years ago, but dont have the disks or serials any more. i want to reinstall my computer but will lose the game, which sucks! Is there a way to back this up? A way to get my serial back outta the game at least?

    If you're using Windows, there are several key recovery tools available. I used one successfully, but I don't remember which one it was.

    For Mac, it seems you're pretty much out of luck. I lost one of my keys this way. (Yes, had two copies.)

    Uh I think you could use migration assistant to transfer it to another computer, then migrate it back to the original mac?

    A very good game. I'm looking in to getting it again when I get Parallels. However I don't think you can back it up.

    :confused: What does Parallels have to do with running Warcraft III? It's Mac native and it wouldn't that great in Parallels.

    Try copying the prefrences and all of the warcraft III related files you can find. I remember doing this a along time ago with success, but i dont remember which files ended up being important.

    Not to worry: Warcraft 3 is 100% leechable. You can just copy your entire Warcraft 3 folder onto another Mac or external hard drive, and copy it back over again when you've reinstalled. I did this when I did a clean install of Tiger on my iBook, and everything still works fine.

    I did what Xeem wrote above. When I upgraded from my Powerbook to my MacBook Pro I just copied the install files over. When I stopped playing for a while I even stored the fines on my external to save space.
