I am going to sell my Archos 5. When I go to formatting tools it says formatting the device will "remove all licences"?

What licences are these? Does it mean it will remove my (paid-for) plug ins? If so, how can I format the device without losing these?

I think it will reset your activation status, so you'd need to reactivate the device. Don't take my word for it. I can't really test it. I only have one A5IMT activated and it died a terrible death :(

Not sure if there is a way to reformat without losing the licenses for your purchased plug-ins. But if you bought the plug-ins directly from Archos, I believe that you can contact them and they will re-authorize them. But if you bought them "aftermarket" (as I did), they are good for only the one time installation (hence the cheap price).

Thanks guys. Better play it safe and manually delete everything then. Pretty stupid though!
