Hi,

From the FAQ for Secure Erase:
Q: My laptop shut down before the secure erase ended, etc... Now my hard drive is locked with a password. How do I unlock it?

A: Normally if the secure erase procedure does not complete HDDerase can be run again and unlock your drive and then complete the erase procedure.

An audit trail will be written to LBA 0 to confirm this. If you are unable to run HDDerase again the user password that is set for HDDerase v3.2 is:

"idrive"

under maximum security.

The user password that is set for all versions of HDDerase v3.1 and below is:

"xty3fgds2h32j4kd02k9rfgep36435"

under maximum security. Please verify the correct version you are using to input the correct password.
Kind Regards

Simon

Hi,

I would assume they are without the "" characters.

Kind Regards
