i was wondering about the My Book’s that offer password protection and encryption
i would like to set up a password for my WD My Book, put files on it, and disconnect the usb to have the files encrypted, and then disconnect the power, and then open/disassemble the My Book to remove the hard drive. (i know that doing this will void the warranty)
can i expect that the contents of the hd remain password protected and encrypted?
is the password for a My Book stored on the hard drive itself?, or is it stored on the sata connector for the hd
can i put my My Book back together and still be able to use it as if i had not opened/disassembled it? like, entering the password still works for it?
