Time Machine connection

How can I take the password off my Freedom Essentials drive so the Time Machine on my Mac can work properly.  The external drive locks up each time the machine goes to sleep and prevents the time machine from backing up

Do you have SmartWare installed?  If so, then you will find how to do it on page 31 of the user manual.
