I forgot my password to open this jump drive.My computer will not let me gain access to any of my files on the disk. What can I do to access it again?


Retrieving a forgotten password on a Cruzer Enterprise drive How do I recover the password on my Cruzer Enterprise 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 can click Forgot Password on the logon window and choose a new password. This will reformat the drive.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications in the user-accessible removable partition.


Password attempts
There is a limit of 10 attempts (default) before the drive is locked and no further access is possible. During this process, you MUST change the password and reformat the drive. This is an important security feature, protecting data in lost devices from brute force hacking attempts.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications in the user-accessible removable partition.


Cruzer Enterprise drive managed by CMC (Central Management and Control)
A drive managed by the Cruzer Enterprise CMC software can be unlocked remotely by the System Administrator when it is inserted into an online computer. The System Administrator can unlock the drive remotely even after the maximum failed password attempts has been reached. The user must then choose a new password. Data stored in the removable partition will be preserved.

If the device is managed but in an offline computer, the System Administrator can send the user a one-time unlock code. The user must enter the code then choose a new password. The existing data on the removable partition will be preserved.
hope this helps

My password protected scandisc cruzer usb stick is refusing to accept the correct password-any solution


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.

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.
