Can I get a backup disk for Office 365?
Can I get an Office 365 CD/DVD?
You have a click-to-run version of Office 365. In case you need to install it again, you want to buy or burn a backup disk of the installation files. It'll be easier and faster than having to do an installation over the internet.
It depends on the version of Office 365 you have
Here's the Official Word from Microsoft: My copy of Office did not come with a disk
The short version is this:
- If you have Office for a single PC (Office Home & Student 2013, Office Home & Business 2013, or Office Professional 2013), you can go to www.office.com/myaccount, log in and order or burn backup copies of Office.
- If you have a subscription version of Office (Office 365 Home, Office 365 Personal, or Office 365 University), all installs are done over the internet/online. MS offers no way for you to make a disk.
How do I know which version I have?
Start PowerPoint and let it open or create a new presentation if it wants to.
Choose File | Account from the ribbon.
On the right, under Product Information / Office, if it says Subscription Product, you have a version that doesn't permit making backup disks.
