I am a screw up....forgot password and not sure if ever had an account here

shows a copy made in 2013 but can’t access device without password. It is not locked. Is it possible to get access or must i just format device and lose what is in it? Thanks It is My passport

By design, there’s no way past a password encryption lock on a MyPassport.

It’s either use the password or wipe it and start again, for security reasons.

thank you I will try and do better in future
