Forgot my password on my sandisk u3 cruzer 4.0gb

I forgot my password on my sandisk u3 cruzer 4.0gb is there anyway i can access my file. The only option i have it seems is to reset my password and lose all my exiting saved files is there anyway around this please help thank you I forgot my password too! I really need to access my files! Who can help me? I have contacted Sandisk and I am currently trying to locate the developer of the software or hardware for the security installed so that my password attempts can be reset. I did not know there was a limited amount of attempts that could be made before I was completely locked out. I have 3 tries left!

    Thank you! I have to ask though... Do you know of any successful attempts with this solution? How safe/trustworthy is this software? I don't want to get a virus!

    I am scared!

    That program didn't bypass the security password. How can I get in touch with the developer of of the security program for my USB?

You can try this
usb drive recovery software

if that doesn't work, you probably will have to reset your pass and lose your files, sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    i know of successful attempts using it on other usb products, as far as virii are concerned, i just installed it and it didn't set off avast or any of my registry/system file watchers.. i have used it previously to recover files from a password protected pen drive, but every manufacturer does things differently, so your mileage may vary.

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:

Dear Team Today when i try to use my CRUZER U3 (8GB) I GET MESSAGE "you have reached the maximum number of failed password...

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

I have micro sandisc 1 gb card .i forgot the password how to recover that.

I myself have several U3 cruzers and I feel where ya coming from. On U3 launch if you choose the "Forgot Password" option, It will format the drive and reset the password........ BUT! ! ! Despair not my fine Cruzer addicted friend.......
http://LC-Tech.comIt may cost money, But as I said I feel your Pain and I have been there, Contact those people and purchace "Recovery Pro" and any lost data can be retrieved.Another option I am wanting to try is using the U3 uninstaller, which backs up all the data on ur PC when uninstalling U3 and replacing it after. I am not sure if that will work, In theory, I think it might, But dont Quote me...... I can let you know once I try it.

I just bought a sandisk cruzer and don't know how to set a password. From what I understand, sandisk allow you to set a password so that a password is need each time you wnat access to the usb drive. Is...

If your cruzer came with U3 then you are in luck. U3 can be set with a password that requires login before any data can be accessed. Just be sure you don't forget the password because it will have to be erased to reset it.
It can be downloaded from here.

If you locked the drive on the U3 Task bar or menu, form the instant you want to go and use a password for U3, there's a message that state the drive once locked there's no turning point. I have 2GB U3 and go to set-up a password and this is the warning. Sorry!!!5525620.gif

U3 system doesn't run

Sandisk offers a program that completely wipes the Cruzer (including the partitioning), turning the drive into a pure unit. This is a permanent solution, and one cannot restore U3 functionality once this has been done. I hate the U3 stuff, so this is something I do with every Cruzer right out of the box.

Doing a search on Google for 'u3 removal' yields a few links, but at this moment, I'm running into a lot of broken links, and the original page on Sandisk's site (where I got the utiliy in the first place) is broken. I use the utility far too much to not be sure of having access to it, so I made sure to have it in my numerous 'essentials collection' CDs at home and work, as well as on my personal page in case I ever was somewhere without the CD.

One note about the version I have.... it is the Windows program, so if you have a Mac, you'll have to go to Sandisk and get the Mac version. I have no idea whether there is an option in Linux, but I'd be surprised if someone hasn't done it. Again, the Google results I got seem to have a lot of potential

Another thing, I have used this program flawlessly on a pile of 1GB and 2GB Cruzers. As far as I know, it will work on other sizes, but just so you're aware, I can't be 100% sure of that.

If you want to grab the Windows executable from my collection, go here:

Hope this helps!
