Recover Keys can find activation keys for the applications installed not only on your local computer but also in remote ones. This can be a great relief in case your system crashes and you need to reinstall all software. The program supports extracting keys for an extensive list of software products.

This tool has a very intuitive interface. A simple set of buttons allows doing most of the actions, like scanning for software keys on local and network computers as well as exporting and printing key lists. In addition, there are other advanced actions, such as shotgun mode, registry hive and Adobe cache scans. The application allows saving the results in various formats, including Word, Excel, PDF, HTML, CSV and XML.

In general, Recover Keys is a very simple program with a narrow scope of usage. However, it’s a valuable help for professionals and home users alike at the same time. Its capacity to scan not only local the local system but also remote computers is absolutely appreciated by network administrators.
