I got some "funny" jokers at home, that set password on my PC as a "joke", but "funny" jokers, forgot to write password.
Now I'm stuck with HDD with password on it, without any real important data.
This is HDD, whose password cannot be bypassed. I decided to erase all data.
I tried to access HDD, by connecting it to "external enclosure for a 2.5" hard disk". So in general, I put my HDD inside, then connect "that thing" with my another computer by USB that was included in package.
I went to "Partiton Manager" from Windows. Which told me to "initialize" drive. There were two options. Whenever I choose one and pressed "Ok", I got these messages:
I downloaded EaseUs Partition Manager and using it, I tried to initialize it, but I got error prompt:
And even when it didn't succeeded, program updated system information about drive. It says 465GB unused. I tried to create empty partition which I set to be 100% of drive. The following error I got:
Now, I downloaded Paragon Harddisk Manager and when I tried to click on "Create Parition", without even pointing to disk. Following error prompted:
This disk works. It was new drive, that is from laptop that is 6 months old. It only has password on it.
In most cases, as so far as I see. It looks like drive is "write protected", how to disable it?
