I have a 1TB “MyBook Essential” hard drive with password protection (aka SmartWare). I travel a lot and was wondering what would happen if I lost my drive one day and someone with a little bit of computer knowledge was able to get a hold of it. How safe would my files be? Will the password be enough? What if they take the drive out the case?
I understand security is a very confidential topic. But can you guys at WD at least give me a “feel” of how safe my data would be under these kinds of conditions. What are the probabilities that the data inside can still be viewed? Thanks.
