I recently had to get a new hard drive for my computer. Before doing so I could only manually back up my information on to an external hard drive with the help of the Genius Bar in an Apple Store. I copied my iWorks folder on to my external hard drive and the dragged it back on to the new one. But this doesn't seem to have worked because I can no longer operate Pages, Numbers or Keynote. I also cannot find my iWorks installation disk so I was wondering if anyone knew how to reinstall iWorks without the disk?

    You copied the iWork (without a final s) but I guess that you didn't copied the
    *_Macintosh HD:Library:Application Support:iWork '09:_*
    folder which contain required shared files.

    Hurry up, go to the AppleStore Web page and download the iWork '09 free trial.
    Install it, apply the late updater and you will get a functional package.

    Of course, a registration code will be required but I can't help you on this point.
    Ask in the Genius bar if the 'Genius' guy which did half the required job the correct path to get a replacement registration code.
    *_And next time, be serious, take care of what you do which original medias._*
