Sometimes, passwordprotection is just a software-issue. In such case you can consider to hook this harddisk to another computer, to see if this protection is still active.
If it is, than it might some software located at your external harddisk. If it does, it's good to verify if it is loaded by a .ini-file.
Windows, for example is default set to check for new hardware, and if it is a harddisk, to explore it in the background. If there's an ini-file in the root, it'll read this file, which might link to a program to activate (located at your harddisk). If you're able to remove this file, you've overcome this protection.
For this, you need to go to "start" and then enter the following command : "cmd" or "command" (without the " ").
NOTE : I don't know which type of Windows you use. Some Windows-versions expect cmd, some command.
If you succeeded, a window will pop-up, with black text. Then go to the specific drive. If your drive is known as D-drive, enter "D:"
Than enter "dir autorun.ini" .
If you see this file is present, then delete this file by :
"delete d:\autorun.ini".
If succeeded type "exit"
Finally, reboot your PC and see if your protection is gone.

Accidentally deleted files


Delete your needed files off from your USB hard drive without backups left? What a pity! But, don't worry! In your case, without drive data backups, you also can try to take them all back with data recovery software.
Just follow this video to get your needed stuffs back step by step:

Deleted file...how can iget it again?


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended asoftech data recovery as it saved my life many times.

How can I recover deleted files


so long as the file has not been overwritten there are many utilties available free that will accomplish this. I have not made this mistake in awhile so i cannot tell you the best current program, but I have used this one before
http://ntfsundelete.com/ and it is quite nice. Keep in mind if you have continued to use the drive and the space that file occupied has since been overwritten you will not be able to recover it.

Delete permaent


Delete - will simply remove reference to the file- thus making the space available - this can be reversed.
To remove filed permanently from a hard drive the whole drive need to be overwritten then formatted-
Even here a determined individual with the correct software will still be able prise out old data.
The only sure way is to destroy the drive.
