File 151534033927.jpg - (11.46KB , 396x127 , doctor.jpg )

So, I have stumbled upon a pc-doctor-USB. Are there any kind of hardware locks on them? Or would copying the whole thing to another USB work?
Im not talking about all those free programs, im talking about the real pc-doctor that companies use.

I could try cloning it, but since ive never found any pirated version, im kinda scared they can track it somehow, like specific code etc for the companies who bought it in the first place?

If its not connected to the internet, how are they going to track it?

I mean if i share it online.
I could just keep the USB myself, but was thinking about maybe making a torrent.

Well if the unit is serialized then yes, they would know which unit was compromised (or at least which customer's license got compromised).

If you have to enter a code to use some functions after booting then it's likely unserialized generic media.

It's probably got a serial number embedded in it if anyone else has ever used it before you. Normally there's either a serial number embedded in the product at the "factory" (someone's garage) or it gets written the first time its used.

Thank you, thats kinda what I was wondering about. You dont need any kinds of codes or serials to use it. So far ive been using it with my computer disconnected just to be sure.
I guess sharing it online would be a bad idea then.
I have no idea how the serial work though, you can boot directly from the USB.

By that I mean that it can be used by anyone, but I suppose they dont care since they can still find who owns it?

It's possible they sell it without any kind of serialization, but for a product that starts at $329 it's kind of unlikely. I've had $100 products that require entering a serial number to unlock the device before booting the first time. After the first boot it was written to the drive so no entry required.

Do you care if the company who bought it gets in trouble? Its not like they could stop it from working offline.

I would also try dd'ng it to another drive and making sure it actually boots and functions before sharing any images of it. Its possible they could check the USB drive manufacturer code and if it doesn't match it'll detect the difference and fail. Don't want to look like a fool AND have whoever bought it get in trouble.
