    Re: Password Protected Hard Drive

    If you don't need any of the information on it would something that removes all partitions hidden and otherwise do the job?

    Unless the password is stored on a chip on the drive elctronics.

    If it is then you are stuffed.

    Re: Password Protected Hard Drive

    Sorry to dig up this old thread.

    Did anyone ever find a way round this, as we've got a machine which one of the b***dy kids has passworded the hard drive on. Data's not important, but we'd prefer not to have to buy a new drive if possible.

    My research indicates that it's virtually impossible to bypass/crack but thought I'd ask incase anyone has managed it.

    Cheers,

    Mike.
