The 1.5 T MyBook (I think elite) is partioned into two drives. One locked the other opened. I moved the drive to a different laptop. The drive is recognized but the locked partition shows up as Raw. When I attempt to install WDTools, it states the drive must be formatted. Of course that would lose all the data on the drive.
What I need to do is somehow unlock the drive, but to do so requires access to the tools.
The other partion is working fine.
How do I get past the issue with asking to format?
How do I install the tools while the drive shows up as raw?
If I format, then I lose all the data, and this is just not an option. That data is critical, and that’s why it was on a locked drive.
The other computer is not available any longer so I can’t go back to it.
