I have a mybook elite that has updated firmware 2.018. I have removed this drive from my old computer to my new computer, but now I can’t access the files. I have tried to update smartware, updated firmware. I believe the problem lies in the permissions that were on the drive. A “computer expert” friend of my changed them when I have having troubles before. It worked like a champ until I tried to move it to new computer. I tried to change permissions again, but now the smartware runs and says the drive E: in not locked. I tried using the VCD software but it can’t detect the drive. I have every photo I have ever taken of my children on this drive and really don’t want to reformat it.
Am I screwed, is there a solution?
Hoping for some help
EDIT: I just updated the firmware again on a different maching (laptop) and I am able to see the drive with the latest smartware, but it is still showing unlocked and unaccessable withing windows explorer
