Hard Disk Serial Number Changer is an application with a pretty self-explanatory name, as it allows users to change the serial number of their hard disk. It doesn't require special knowledge, since it's very easy to work with.

The operating system assigns this key to your hard disk when installing it. Under normal circumstances, the number can only be changed by formatting the drive. But Hard Disk Serial Number Changer takes care of this matter easily and efficiently.

This is a portable application, so installation is not a prerequisite. It means that you can drop the executable file anywhere on the disk and just click it to run.

As an alternative, you can save Hard Disk Serial Number Changer to a USB flash drive or similar device, and run it on any machine without prior installers.

What's important to keep in mind is that the Windows registry does not get new entries, and leftovers are not kept on the hard drive after removing the utility (a basic file deletion is enough).

The interface is made from a regular window with a "what you see is what you get" layout, where you can select a drive letter from a drop-down list and change the serial number into anything you want. Applying the new changes is done by clicking a button, but you are required to restart the computer to view the effects. There are no other options available.

As we have expected, Hard Disk Serial Number Changer has minimal impact on system resources and applies the new settings without error. We have not come across any issues in our tests, and the tool did not hang or crash. Even though it has not been updated for a while, Hard Disk Serial Number Changer works well on newer OS platforms.
