I found a key online, but in order to copy the found data back to your computer, you need to buy it.

Hmm, it seems to cost $70 or so. Is it worth it?

Well if you can find a key or a patch online for free it would be great, but if thats not what you do... then I would say buy it if you need it. Its a great piece of software.

Try it out first though. In the unlicensed version you can do everything but copy the files.
