I forget my password of imation defender 8go F150


The short answer is without the password, all info on the drive will stay encrypted and locked forever. It looks like you may still format it and at least get to reuse the drive. Formatting will erase EVERYTHING on the drive permanently. Here is some more specific information

How do i reformat, i have also forgotten the admin password. i use it for backing up my mbp


To format a hard drive go into my computer right click the drive and hit format. Select NTFS for the file system and hit format. This will erase all the data on your drive so make sure anything you need is backed up. No password should be needed to format the hard drive.

I forget my password to unlock my wd smartware


There is no way to unlock the software or hard drive without the password. All you can do is format the drive and erase the data to get functionality of the drive back. If you have access to the SmartWare software, but not the hard drive, you still have to erase the data and can use the software to do so. Here are some instructions:

1. Well, if you have the WD SmartWare already installed you are in luck as there is Erase function built onto WD SmartWare software. There are 2 ways. #2 or #3.
2a. Click to Settings Tab on 4th right.
2b. Click to Set Up Drive
2c. Click Erase Drive and follow the instruction.
3a. Plug in the drive and you will be prompted to type in password.
3b. Type in 5 "wrong/bad" password
3c. This will trigger Too Many Attempts and asked to accept data loss and get drive back.

I bought a wd external hard drive last year and inserted it with a password. now 8 months later i have forgotten the password and not many contents are inside. it is practically empty . i want to use it...


Unfortunately without the password there is no way to recover the contents of the drive. To make the drive usable again, you can reformat it (and lose all the current contents):
  • On a Windows computer, right-click the drive and select Format drive. Pick NTFS as the filetype.
  • On a Mac, go to disk utilities and select the drive you want to format. Click on the Erase tab, and select Mac OS Extended (Journaled) for the Volume Format Type. Name the hard drive and hit the erase button.

Hi sir how are you? sir when i on notebook toshiba satellite pro p300-19q model-009005en it come up with password screen enter HDD PASSWORD sir please help me so nice of you ibmlaptop111@gmail.com


The only way to remove the password is to format and erase the hard drive. All data will be lost in the process.

Use this software to format and erase all data on the hard drive and remove the password.

The software (Darik's Boot Nuke) must be burned to a CD and run overnight.

Windows will need to be re-installed after this process is completed.

Dvr will not record. i get the message, " hard drive full" is there a way to erase what is on the hard drive?


You can erase the contents of the drive or set the drive to overwrite when full. Erasing the drive is the equivalent of reformatting (you will not be able to recover the images easily).

To Erase/Format, enter the Menu system and select Hard Drive Setup (seventh line in the list). Press Enter, then go to HDD Format (fourth item in the list) and press Enter. Then enter your password (set up under System Setup) but the default password is 111111, if it is on. If you entered the correct password, the screen will flash HDD Formatted 3 times. Press Menu to exit the menu. (If the incorrect password was put in, Incorrect Password will flash.)

To overwrite, again go to Hard Drive Setup then select the first item, Drive Full. Press Enter to toggle Overwrite On or Off. You will be able to recover the images until they are overwritten.

I hope this helps.

How format 8GB pendrive because file protected


  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Computer Management. getcontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  2. In the left pane, under Storage, click Disk Management.
  3. Right-click the volume that you want to format, and then click Format.
  4. To format the volume with the default settings, in the Format dialog box, click OK, and then click OK again.
    Notes
    • You cannot format a disk or partition that is currently in use, including the partition that contains Windows.
    • The Perform a quick format option will create a new file table, but will not fully overwrite or erase the volume. A quick format is much faster than a normal format, which fully erases any existing data on the volume.

Create a password


Well, other than finding an internet freeware program I'm not sure if you can. But don't format you're drive yet, I'm sure there is a solution.
