You can get rid of the password by going into the BIOS. Press F2 when you see the logo and look around for security options.

If you can't find the hard drive password field, post what model laptop you have and I can be a little more specific.

MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I Disable the "SECURITY FREEZE LOCK" on my hitachi HTS54503289a300, 320 GB sata hard Drive? originally WAS INTALLED IN MY ACER TRAVELMATE LAPTOP NANUFACTURED IN 2012 BUT THE LAP


Maybe if you can format the disk-but you loose data, maybe there is a program that can do it, probably in linux, or bootable itself, maybe ask acer for master password or something, if you still own original laptop and it runs then try to remove disk encryption while the hdd is accessible with laptop (i think its in bios), otherwise the hdd may be unusable to prevent data theft. you can plug any sata hdd into any sata device if you can hook all the cables, no compatibility issues there. try googling and youtubing for more answers

Sata port password


The password was set by the hard drive owner. Nowadays hard drives can be encrypted and therefore locked and a unique password is required.

How to get master password for hitachi hard drive


Wow, why don't you know the password? I'm not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you encounter a computer that has a lock on the hard drive and the person in possession of the computer does not know the password, the computer is stolen. The original owner puts a lock on it to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data.

I have a aspire one Acer and when I turn it on it says in a blue box, Harddisk Security and under it says Primary Master Hitachi HTS543216L9SLock. What can I do to restore it?


The drive is locked by a BIOS level Hard drive password. You can either contact Acer about a master password or replace the HDD since the password data is stored on the drive itself

My HDD Dell 300GB 15K 3.5" SAS, i used with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. The problem after installing the hdd total capacity its 279 How can manage this? Thank you


Hard drive manufacturers market drives in terms of decimal (base 10) capacity. In decimal notation, one megabyte (MB) is equal to 1,000,000 bytes, one gigabyte (GB) is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes, and one terabyte (TB) is equal to 1,000,000,000,000 bytes.

Programs such as FDISK, system BIOS, Windows, and MacOS use the binary (base 2) numbering system. In the binary numbering system, one megabyte is equal to 1,048,576 bytes, one gigabyte is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes, and one terabyte is equal to 1,099,511,627,776 bytes.

Simply put, decimal and binary translates to the same amount of storage capacity. Let's say you wanted to measure the distance from point A to point B. The distance from A to B is 1 kilometer or .621 miles. It is the same distance, but it is reported differently due to the measurement.

Capacity Calculation Formula

Decimal capacity / 1,048,576 = Binary MB capacity
Decimal capacity / 1,073,741,824 = Binary GB capacity
Decimal capacity / 1,099,511,627,776 = Decimal TB capacity

Example:
A 500 GB hard drive is approximately 500,000,000,000 bytes (500 x 1,000,000,000).

500,000,000,000 / 1,048,576 = 476,837 megabytes (MB) = 465 gigabytes (GB)

My drive became locked with a password or I forgot my hard drive password. How do I gain access to my data?

Answers from Hitachi : Unfortunately, there is no way to bypass the security password feature of Hitachi hard disk drives. If the password is not known or has been misplaced, Hitachi will not be able to assist in gaining access to the data on the drive.

Acer 5315 recon harddisc security password required


Hello,

Bad news, someone has set the hard drive security option. The hard drive is hardware locked and can't be unlocked without the password. Not even putting the hard drive in another machine will bypass the security. You can send the drive to hitachi repair in Dallas, Tx. for recovery but it is very pricey.

HITACHI HARD DRIVE LOCKED


Hello Oldnovii
This Toshiba notebook has both a BIOS and hard drive lock on it. The client has already paid $ 25 to the Toshiba depot to have the BIOS lock removed now they want $ 100 to remove the hard drive lock. The hard drive lock cannot be removed by trying to bypass it using a boot cd or disabling the hard drive boot option in the BIOS. Any help will be appreciated since my client has now had the notebook for 2 weeks and cannot use it. Thanks
