I have a WD 800JD SE here that I need to wipe for the agency I work for. We are using secure erase and the problem is that we cannot wipe these drives because of a “BIOS Dependent” security feature that prevents any changes in liue of protecting against password changes by maware.
On that note, we have even swapped the WD800JD with a completely different make and mode PC and still could not get past the ATA security feature.
How can I unlock these drive so they can be securely wiped?
