Swapping hard drives and OS

So, I'm going to make the move to Win7 in the next few days. I'm using the opportunity to just get rid of the current drive (which is 3 years old and been in mostly continuous use) and plopping in a new drive. To clarify... all I need to do is deactivate before I yank the current drive and I should be golden for the reinstall, right?

Yes, deactivating increments your available licenses on our server, so you can reinstall on a upgraded old or new PC.

Good question...can I deactivate cineform on my PC to use HDLink on my Laptop and then re-activate on my PC when I am done traveling? How many times can the deactivate / activate be done - thx.

Rich,

Yes you can do that. There is not limit to the number of deactivation and reactivations.
