    i have activated my windows 8 pro with kms activation and gave me 180 days
    1: When 180 days pass can i re-activate it with the same way? or i can do it only once
    2: I have find a thread here for backing up the activation
    i have saved the store folder after the 180 days how can i re-activate the 180 days if the (1) question is not possible?
    i have not understood a lot from the activation back up thread because im beginner

    1: yes
    2: no (point)



    *kms is not permanent activation, so restore after 180 no point

    backup only the permanent activated

    so, after the 180 days you can re-activate with any kms server or does it have the be the one you originally used?

    If you didn't use your "origin" KMS activator/Server you could use any other which you could get access to and which could activate Windows 8!

    If you didnt clear the KMS server address on the client the client will re-activate itself against the KMS server every 7 days by default, Thus giving you another 180 days, If the Client cant connect to the KMS Server then it will count down the 180 days and when it gets to 0 Windows will go into notification mode.

    So basically if the KMS server your using is accepting activations your count will never drop below 173 days
