I had to replace the hard drive on my computer which I had Windows 10 that I had installed when it was free. Now I can't recover Windows 10 and don't want to have to buy a new license. Is there anything I can do.

If you have the original disks that came with your computer, the restore disks or reinstall disks.

If you can reinstall any version of windows.. Then you can then use this upgrade version to install windows 10 without having to pay for it.

It says its the assistive technology version, but its the same exact windows 10 that MS gave out for free.

If you have any further questions or concerns, let me know!
