My WD hard disk (my passport 1 TB) got auto locked and stating “repeated password attempts”. I could not format it as well. I am fine with foresaking this hard disk but I need to recover arnd 650 gb worth of data in the same. Can someone suggest some ways for recovery?
I would like your opinions on following ways
mounting in a linux system - will it help as i feel locking up is a OS related issue (mine was locked in a windows pc)?
Giving it to a third party recovery person - they charge really high - but can they do it?
