I brought up this issue more than half a year ago in the ‘New Ideas’ section, no answer though. Maybe here somebody can advise.
I protect MyBook by password and use, among others, to store a disaster recovery image of my system.
Unlocking, however, as far as I know, is possible via its own software, in turn, via the OS only.
When my Windows collapsed the recovery bootable CD couldn’t get to the stored image. I had to reinstall Windows (a blank copy, of course), then reinstall WD’s software, then remove the password. After all this only could I start the recovery at last.
A direct way to unlock, e.g. by a bootable CD, would be helpful very much.
Could somebody let me know how to create a bootable CD with WD’s software and, of course, the necessary background, I guess with Windows PE.
If, e.g. I install Windows PE 4 64 bit as described in
can I simply install WD’s software on it, and use this disc, as boot, to remove the password? If not, what can I do for that?
Thanks a lot.
