Hi all. the Lunatic here. Running an ACER aspire 5250 (stock) with Win7home. Attached a 250GB WD external hd with usb adapter for storage/ space. HAD stupidly forgotten the network password for the dang drive, so i can't get in without resetting that.....but cannot for the life of me remember what I used five mos. ago and tried 'em all !!! Still no joy.
Anyhow. It shows in Comp.mgmt.console as Disk 1 - not initialized, but I get CRC error if I try. On MyComputer it shows as a Network item, rather than a drive assigned hd.? and appears there's no way to remove it from That category ?
I tried PC login now, but that's not picking up on the usb drive when it's linux kernel loads (only my C:\ drive.
The directory of C:\ does show the Owner-16H...blah blah drive in directories - but I have no clue how to 'command' it to chkdsk, or fdsk to just reformat the dang thing ?
I do have full dvd disk hard copies of all my data, so I'm not worried for data loss. Just more annoyed I don't want to tank a perfectly good 250GB drive because I can't access it thru that dang password.??
Any ideas ??
Thank you in advance for any help.
