    Hello,


    My hard drive crashed. Restored from backup. . Was a free upgrade to windows 10 from 8.1. can't activate pro. Says found digital license for win 10 pro and the install also is win 10 pro. Tried troubleshooter, says upgrade? Why? Same version. I did it anyway, won't activate. Fix? Thank you.

    :)

    Free hard drive backup/restore program?

    I am looking for a free (freeware) program that will back up and restore a hard drive. I'm looking to clone a few external hard drives. If the program will backup the used space instead of the whole drive this will be awesome! Thanks for any suggestions.
