In order to restrict software installed or control the number of activation allowed in one particular computer, the volume serial number has been used by software developers to track where and how many times the software has been installed. Volume serial number is unique and it will be changed whenever the hard disk is formatted. If you would like to restore your PC image back to your hard disk after it is formatted, you may run into the problem of not able to run some software due to not able to recognize the old volume serial number. To get this issue solved, there is one utility, named as Hard Disk Serial Number Changer that can change your volume serial number back to previous serial number.
Hard Disk Serial Number Changer is freeware and handy to use. It can change the volume serial number to what you preferred. Prior to format your hard disk, remember to write down the volume serial number so that you can change the volume serial number back to previous one after it is formatted.

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>dir
