WD HD 1TB locked - password lost

Hello everyone, I am writing from Italy

I have a 1Tb HD WD with data inside. This HD was locked with a password chosen by my dad who unfortunately died in December.

Today I find myself having to enter this HD but unfortunately I do not remember the password and my dad has not written it anywhere!

Is there a way to recover this password, reset it, enter somehow without obviously losing data in the HD?

Thanks a lot to those who help me!!
