I currently have OS X El Capitan installed on my iMac
I have backed up the whole HD to my 3TB NAS using "Timemachine". I have formatted a USB flash with the El CApitan installer on it ready to install a fresh copy of the OS.
The questions I have are:
Can I pull the applications as .app files and just drop them back into the /applications folder
Will this the way also allow me to get Microsoft Office 2011 back on after Ive reinstalled the OS or will i need my licence (when i find it?)
