Thank you for your question. My name is Jess and I am glad to assist you today.
I do not recommend that you do a clean install since it will wipe out all your data and begin from a clean slate.
Regarding your external drive, is it still detected by your system but not by Time machine?
Thank you for writing back and I'm sorry for the confusion. I can confirm that you have not subscribed to our service so you shall not be billed monthly and this is a one time transaction only.
Do you still wish to cancel this question?
Please let me know so that I can assist you further.
OK. And you can also request a refund on our site.
Thank you for using our service.
