My ST980811AS SEAGATE DRIVE IS PASSWORD PROTECTED, I CAN'T ACCESS DRIVE. HOW DO I UNLOCK THIS?


If its password protected then it was probably encrypted. If its encrypted then youll need the recovery key to get to the information. If you do not have this you will need to reformat the disk and reinstall OS.

My ST980815A SEAGATE DRIVE IS PASSWORD PROTECTED, I CAN'T ACCESS DRIVE. HOW DO I UNLOCK THIS?


how did it get password protected? you may need to purchase software that allows you to get into the drive. you will have to reformat the drive which will make the password disappear, the software I recommend is called "Disk Director" and it costs about 30 dollars.

My laptop(running Vista) allows me to see a folder on my Seagate external drive but will not allow me to see the folder contents.


Is that the System Volume Information folder? If it is, you can't see the content of this folder as it's a system folder and it's related to the restore points your PC is creating for that hard drive.
Else, it may be that whoever created the folder has locked it so you cant open it without a password.
