Plug your Iomega hard drive into the USB port on your computer. Click the "Start" button and choose the "My Computer" icon. Double-click on your Iomega hard drive's icon. Right-click in a blank space on the window and choose the "New Folder" option from the menu that appears. Highlight and drag all of your data into the new folder that you created. Right-click the new folder and select the "Properties" tab. Navigate to the "Sharing" tab and check the small box next to "Make This Folder Private." Click the "Apply" button and then choose "OK." Use your Windows login password to access the folder and the contents. Hope this helps

Last time, when my Samsung mobile phone was locked by password, I also forgot the password and tried to disable the password protection functions by using the ways searched over the internet.

You will want to encrypt the hard drive. One of the most popular programs is PGP, it is free and open source. Once this is done, you will will have to enter a password when ever you try to access that drive.

Your hard drive encrypts all the data put on it, so you need a password to access it. If you haven't changed anything, the default password should be just the word "password" I would recommend changing that as soon as you get into the drive. There should be a very obvious option in the program once you enter the password for the first time.
