Copy MS office into External Hard drive



Copy and paste method will not able to work when we comes to Microsoft office. If you have the serial key you can download office setup from internet. then using same serial key you can install office.

Alternatively what you can do is you can create a system image and copy it to external hard disk and one day if you want to use the office package from external hard disk you can restore the image to your computer and you can work from it. but it has to be your same system.

thank you

Inorder to transfer MS Office related programs from your external and into your internal, or vice versa, you must copy all the folders from MS Office, it's registry data and its operating system. in other words you must clone the entire operating system and all of the system data in your computer or machine.

Step 4. On the right side, click clone

Step 5. Now select your source hard drive (this is your external drive) and then select where you want to put you MS office ( this will be your PC or machine)

Step 6. Read the notice and then click next

Step 7. Click next again to confirm
