I wish i had read the details about the WD Drive unlock software before I bought my external My Passport hard drive.
I’m under the impression that there is no way to remove this annoying software even with a reformatting.
What I’m not understanding is that when I look at my windows 10 directory I see 2 entries for CD Drive (i) wd drive unlock.exe.
I have to click both of them to be able to open the passport drive.
Why is it listed on my CD drive?
How do I remove the extra copy?
Google … Disable/Hide Virtual CD (VCD)
It can’t be Removed, only Disabled/Hidden.
It can be done either via Software or Windows 10 Device Manager
here is what I am referring to
Thanks for your response. Yes, It was my fault for not researching it further before purchasing it. I was blinded by the price and the storage capacity!
I’ll try out your suggestions. Much appreciated.
Maybe you can help me again. For some reason I can no longer see the 2 WD unlocker drives (?) in my win 10 directory. Now I can not access the drive at all.
I didn’t uninstall anything. How do I even find the exe file?
Thanks for the info. Solution one and a reboot did the trick.
