Needed some photos so connected my WD 3TB external SSD, and all of a sudden: not doing anything. Ran WD Drive Utilities, and it all of a sudden asks for a password.
I’ve never set a password. The hint is also blank. I live alone, don’t feel a need to protect it, and never did. So I have no clue what happened. I have 3 versions of my “master password” which I tried (wrote it first, copied it for spelling check: all wrong.
What now? There are some seriously important files on there. I’m flabbergasted.
