Change your hard drive serial number effortlessly!

This free to download application is an easy to carry and light program that confers users with the ability to change their machine's C drive serial numbering system to a customized set of values, in an efficient and user friendly manner. The title "Hard Disk Serial Number Changer" is a completely self-explanatory moniker, as basically the application permits users to alter their hard disks' serial number.

A portable and easy to use tool

The program does not require specialized technical savvy knowledge, and it is remarkably easy to operate. It runs on all versions of Windows OS, from the classic Windows 98 and XP to the more recent, higher spec 8.1 and Windows 10. The file is 636 kb in size, so it will not use up an enormous amount of space. The OS on your machine performs an assignment of the key to your machine's hard disk during installation. Usually, changes can only be made to the number by the formatting of the drive. But Hard Disk Serial Number Changer looks after this process easily and efficiently. This is a portable application, so installation is not a prerequisite. It means that users can place executable files in any location on the disk and then all that is required is simply click it to run.

Lightweight and simple

The program's interface is fashioned from an everyday ordinary window with a "straight shooting" layout, where users can choose a specific lettered drive from a selection of drop-down menus and alter the serial numbers into any sequence required. The application of these new changes is effected by the simple click of a button, but in order to peruse the full suite of benefits, users are required to restart their machine. Test users have noted that the application has little or no effect on your system's resources and in general it has applied the fresh settings in an error free manner. Testers have found no recurring issues in their processes of scrutiny, notably the tool was not found not to crash or hang. Although it has not been subjected to an in depth update since the late 2000s Windows 7 era, the program is fully compatible on newer OS like Windows 8.1 and 10.

A perfect match: free, safe and portable

To sum up, this program is exceptionally portable, transferable and user friendly. It is proven empirically through thousands of hours of testing across all formats to be virus free and safe for your machine's hard drive. It will save business users hundreds of labor hours subcontracted to an ICT specialist, as the user can now change their PC or laptop's hard drive serial number without reformatting the device. The sheer convenience that this offers to users makes the program a cost effective (i.e free) option that is flexible enough to keep pace with frequent Windows updates and is highly recommended to download as soon as possible!

    It's ok....
    It works on most hard/flash drives/disks with FAT/FAT32/NTFS format but unfortunately it won't work on the new exFAT format.
