Recover Keys can help you rescue software activation keys. In addition, it can be used proactively to back up keys even before they get lost. The tool can find registration data not only on your local computer but also other machines on the same network. Besides, the program supports examining other hard disks and Windows systems. What is more, there is an advanced option, called Shotgun Mode Scan, that searches the Registry for any value resembling an activation key. This comes quite handy when the desired data cannot be retrieved with the standard mode.

The tool is a great option for network administrators because it enables them to keep a record of all the software products on the local network. Luckily, it is possible to select specific computers and even the desired IP range.

The tool performs a very fast scan and provides you with the keys of practically all the programs installed. In this regard, it presently supports more than 9000 software products. When the results are ready, you can save them to a database, which you can conveniently edit, manage and filter. Similarly, the report can be exported to multiple formats, including text files, DOC, XLS, PDF, HTML, CSV, and XML, or sent directly to a printer.

In short, Recover Keys does a simple but important job that may save you much money in case of accidental loss of your software activation keys. The product is free to try, with the limitation of showing only the first four characters of each key.
