How to unlock the WD drive on a shared PC with standard user priveleges?

I wanted to use my external drive on a shared PC at work where I’m a standard user on that PC. When trying to unlock my passport protected WD external drive the unlocker executable file tells me I need to be an administrator to be able to unlock the drive. How do I get around this issue?

Unfortunately, you will need to access an administrator account in order to unlock your unit. If you do not normally have access to an administrator account then I’d recommend permanently disabling your unit’s password using WD Security (This also requires an administrator account).

You can ask the administrator to allow (add) WD unlocker to be run as admin.

OK. Thank you.
