Hard drive space was low so I transferred everything to new mirrored drives using paragaon. Now my CALs have reverted to 5 - Can I search the old drives for that info. If so, where should I start?

Found someone else with this problem...this was their solution:

"The SBS2003 licenses are kept in the licstr.cpa file in the WINDOWS\system32 folder. Thankfully, Microsoft actually keeps an automatic backup of this in autolicstr.cpa. The simple process was to stop the License Logging Service, rename licstr.cpa to licstr.cpa.old, then copy autolicstr.cpa to licstr.cpa. After this I started License Logging Service and used Server Management to confirm that the licenses had been restored. "

Hope that helps!
