Password lost for My Passport Ultra 931 GB

I am using My Passport Ultra 931 GB
I transferred my kid childhood photo to this external hard-drive.
But Now I am unable to get due to forgot the password and there is no hint also. I don’t have any backup so I don’t want it to get formatted.
Please help to recover the data with lose of data.

You are out of luck. Drive will need to reformat and all data will be gone. There is a link somewhere on WD community website that someone found a way to break the password but that required to use Linux.

Thanks jebusx. Could you please provide the link for LINUX OS.

U might have to search for it. I don’t remember when, where I read it. You could try by reading this link
