Hard drive locked

By support ·
Hi,

I have a Wester Digital hard drive that has a hardware lock on it. Most data recovery programs do not even recognize the hard drive but some of them do and request a password to unlock it.

Note: The hard drive is not broken and I am not talking about windows password.

I need to remove this lock, any ideas?

May need to low level format the drive

by Why Me Worry? In reply to Hard drive locked

Go to Western Digital's website and download a low level format utility, but realize that you will risk losing data on the drive.

I had already thought of that, however I am trying to find some other options or at least find the right sectors to low level format so I can recover the remaining data.
