    System Information Activation status


    I am looking learn whether I can view the activation status of a windows installation using msinfo32, i.e. system information?

    This appeared as a test question and the answer was yes, but I can't see it listed in system info.

    I know there are other ways to find out if windows is activated, I am only interested in whether it is in msinfo32.

    • Search for Volume Shadow Copy service.

    • Right click on it and select
    Now, take ownership of the System volume Information folder and then try to delete its contents.

    Step 2: File permissions.

    • Right click on System volume Information folder.
    • Select Properties.
    • Go to Security tab.
