Preventing Theft

Is there anyway that you can prevent data theft should your My Book Live get stolen?

It seems that someone can set the admin password to default by pressing the reset button and thereafter, change the passwords of the various users to access the shares.

Can someone confirm this?

Yes, that’d be possible.

That’s why the MBLs have a lockable chassis with a “Kensington” style locking port.

Short of that, another option would be to use data encryption software like Passkey.
