I have a WD Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB Hard Drive which comes with WD Smartware software. I had put a password in it without a hint and now I have lost the password. This hard drive use 256 bit hardware encryption. All my personnel and important data is in it and I am unable to remember the password.
How can I unlock the drive without formatting it, is there any way to crack or hack the smartware and unlock it?
How can I get my data?
