    Terastation Pro admin password reset.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to hack or reset the admin password on these I've forgotten it and what I've written down isn't correct and I've tried all manner of other combinations.

    Yeah found that myself.

    I can't seem to locate an init button on my unit.

    Yep, if the init reset button doesn't work, rip the thing apart and mount the drive(s) in the nearest Linux machine and alter /etc/password as required.

    Found this:
    TeraStation Pro - Black Chasis -

    1. Open the front panel and look under the left corner of the LCD screen.

    2. Press and hold for 15 seconds. The device will start beeping. The password has been changed to the default password.

    Ah ha thought it might be under the front panel just looking for the key now, if not it's only plastic so I'll butcher it.

    It's being replaced with a 5.25TB Opefiler SAN/NAS in the summer anyway.
