Question
Will reformatting my hard drive affect my FD8 activation?

Answer

Reformatting your hard drive will KILL your FD8 activation. Deactivate your hard drive before you reformat. To deactivate, open Final Draft, go to Help > Deactivate. Follow the onscreen instructions for the on-line or manual steps.

Defragmenting your drive should not affect your activation.

IMPORTANT: Live technical support (phone, chat, email) for Final Draft 8 will end on December 31, 2017. You will still be able to find information and solutions in this knowledge base, in the online troubleshooter and in the FD8 User Guide.
