Good evening,

I'm about to format my hard drive and am wondering how to reinstall Trados (SDL Trados Freelance 2007) when I'm done. When I bought the license in 2008 I downloaded the software from the website. Now I assumed that I just log into my account, download it again and enter my license key. However, when trying to log into my SDLX account, I'm told that it's not active anymore, no reasons given. Does anyone know what to do?

This happened to me, too, several years ago and I just sent an e-mail explaining the situation. It wasn't a problem, as I recall. You must return the license to SDL Trados online before you re-format your drive, then download it again afterwards, otherwise the license gets "lost" and it's somewhat of a hassle to get it replaced.

Hope this helps.
