I'm bringing my 2012 MacBook pro in for a checkup/possible SSD replacement.
I have a Time Machine backup and a Super Duper image.
What apps should I deactivate (if any)...Adobe photographer CC (2014), perfect photo suite 9, nik collection, numerous topaz apps, Image Print are all on my MBP and iMac. Should I deactivate them? Just in case the SSD is replaced or wiped?
What about other apps like Dragon Dictate, Print Shop 3 or Vuescan?
i also use Dropbox (my LR cat is there among many other things) - Should I turn off sync with the MBP? Should I delete some of the Dropbox files?
if you have a current, known good, time machine backup and a Super Duper clone that you plan on using to restore your Mac with there is no need to deactivate or sign out of any Adobe software. You will restore it on the same exact system.
Thanks. Just what I hoped but wasn't sure about. That must mean that the license is either in some of the system files or in ram memory not tied to the ssd itself.
Terrific for me :-)
The license file is stored in a folder on your drive and is backed up every time you make a clone or TM backup.
Even if Apple replaced your complete Mac once you restore from that TM backup or the SD clone you will be good to go.
