Hard drive replacement

Solved!
Go to solution

I would like to replace the aging 1Tb rotational drive in my Windows 10 computer, with an SSD. Lookout 6.7.1 (build 49152) is installed and activated on the computer and less than 100Gb of data is stored on the drive.

 

Will Lookout still work, if I were to simply image/clone the old drive to the SSD and replace it? Can I opt for a smaller SSD (480Gb), without any problems?

I'm not sure if swapping the drive would change the NI computer ID, but a change to the computer ID would require re-authorizing the Lookout license.  You could try swapping the drive, but be prepared to re-authorize Lookout if you do.
