Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

1 Answer

My SanDisk flash drive locked me out!

My SanDisk flash drive locked me out because I attempted to enter my password a few times and I didn't realize my caps lock was on. (Of course, it didn't warn me that the caps was on.) I have nearly 16GB worth of critical files on the drive. Is there any way to get to my files, or better yet unlock the drive?

I will forgot my password of my sandisk u3


Unfortunately, you can NOT access your user data and applications on the device without a password.

If you think you are entering the correct password, ensure that CAPS lock or NUM lock is not turned on. You should try to type your password in another application (like word or email) to ensure that it is being entered correctly. This can help you see if CAPS lock, NUM lock, or a sticky key is causing the password to actually be entered incorrectly.

Password attempts
There's a set number of attempts before U3 locks your device and you have to reformat it.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

Password hint
If you set a hint when you enabled the password protection, click Hint in the log in window to display the hint you entered. If you did not set a hint or still can not remember your password you will have to reformat the drive.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

It is recommended to keep a backup of all the data on your U3 device on your PC for safe keeping.

I have cruzer 16gb i entered wrong password 3 times and it got locked i need access to data what do i do?


It doesn't look like this is possible. For your protection, SanDisk did not build in a backdoor or reset feature in the device.

Please see SanDisk's official statement on this feature:

Each U3 smart drive comes with a pre-defined number of login attempts. When you have only 3 attempts remaining, you will receive a warning message to prevent losing your data unnecessarily.
SanDisk does not have any method to bypass the password security feature on Cruzer U3 flash drives. SanDisk has not built in any back door or password reset methods. If the password feature is enabled and you exceed the number of incorrect password attempts, the drive will lock. Once the drive is locked there is no way to unlock the drive or gain access to the data stored on the device. You can only select the format feature, which will perform a secure erase (drive wipe) and data recovery will NOT be possible. U3 Cruzer flash drives which are password protected use 128bit AES encryption for data security

You're out of luck on this one that is why they put the security feature on there. You'll either have to take a chance with another password and lose your info or format the drive and lose the info anyway. Sorry couldn't be much help.

Lost password and need the data from a sandisk cruzer thumb drive


There is no way to recover the data or password if the password if forgotten. Also, there is a limit to the number of attemps before the device becomes unusable. There will be an error message that pops up when you get within 5 attempts from loosing the data forever.

Did you put a password hint when you established your password? If so, hit the hint button to remind yourself.

Also, make sure you are entering the password correctly. Type your password into notepad or some other program to make sure caps lock, num lock, scroll lock, or any other sticky type key isn't making you enter the password incorrectly when you think it is correct.

If you cannot remember the password, you will have to reformat the drive and loose the data.

Also, once a password is set, the drive can only be read on a windows desktop or laptop. NOT in any other device or operating system. If you need to use it on something else like a camera, printer, game console, or a Mac, etc., then log into the drive on a PC and then disable the password feature.

I hope this helps.

Of course you can recover all your data whether its being reformat at first. But if you format that in second time i don't thinks its possible. Using a program that is very helpful to us is the idea of recovering all kinds of data such as documents, pictures, sound files & etc. Possible 80% Recover of your Data.
