i had to do a System only -reset because of software error in NAS. (DL2100 drive is empty!) and before that “the needle reset” by pressing the reset button behind in the NAS.
i have encrypted the drive and found it abit peculiar that i can reset the admin password and then access to any files and folders in NAS.
This means that if anybody hijacks the device, he can just reset it and encryption means really nothing. Just slowing the device… Am i missing something or is there a huge security issue in WD software? Shouldnt it atleast ask the previous admin/user passwords to access the shares?
Now it let to reset admin password and then admin can change user paswords and hence access to any shares…
