Default FlashFXP loses reg. code after drive changes

After copying everything from one drive to another (using Partition Magic 8), and swaping the drives (so I have a removable backup), I have to re-enter my registration code into FlashFXP. There were really no changes made to the OS, or the partitions. I basically mirrored one drive to the other.

Partition Magic v8
Windows 98SE
FlashFXP v2.0 b910

I wont pretend to know exactly what value or check failed after the ghost process, to cause FlashFXP to ask you re-enter your registration information. Lets just say that FlashFXP is written to be very difficult to pirate.

I'm sorry that this adversely effects your ability to backup/restore your system, hassle free.

Well, to be honest, this isn't the only software I've had that's done this to me. As long as I can use the same registration code every time it does this (which I was able to do), it shouldn't be a big problem.

I perfectly understand the reasons of discouraging piracy.

Don't worry about making my backup hassle-free -- there is no such thing

There's no problems using the same reg code again. You paid for it and it's like the serial you get with programs in the box. And I hear ya on the non hassle free backups.

Once the registration key has been entered it's limited to the current hard drive. If the hard drive changes you'll be prompted to re-enter your key.

This is done to prevent people from sharing a pre-registered copy of FlashFXP by forcing them to re-enter the key. Unfortunately this was a big problem in previous versions of FlashFXP.
