Re: password problems

Hi there, which external drive is the one that you have? As far as I know you can't erase the password without the data.....

...and as far as I know, even the data recovery won't do it...   Your data isn't lost, you've just got no password.

 

$400 might recover the encrypted data, but you'd still need a password...
