Q: unlock usb


I have locked my usb with password and it gets unlocked in my dell laptop. But I have recently changed my laptop with no access to old laptop. I have forgotten the password for usb. I don't know how to get the recovery key of my old laptop. I was using dell Vostro 14 series with windows 10 in it. And now I am using Lenovo notepad with windows 10. Can you help me with a way to unlock the usb as it is urgent.


Preferred Solution: unlock usb

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Western Digital WD My Passport 2 TB external hard drive
Western Digital's security software allows a password to be set on the external drive, encrypting it. When the drive is connected to a PC, a virtual CD (VCD) partition runs (via autorun) an unlocker utility WD Drive Unlock.exe, that allows password entry.
When I connect the locked drive to a Windows 7 PC (that does not have any WD software installed), the autoun popup appears and I select "Run WD Drive Unlock.exe". At that point, User Account Control (UAC) elevation prompt appears, requiring Administrator
password in order to continue.
WD Drive Unlock then lets me enter password.
Because of UAC elevation, the unlocker can be used only by an Administrator user or by a standard user account who knows the Administrator password.

Is UAC elevation prompt truly necessary?
Is it appearing because Western Digital hasn't coded the unlocker exe correctly, or would any such utility require UAC elevation?

I'd like to find a way that a standard user account can run the unlocker to enter passsword and access the external drive, without having to know the Windows Admin password.

How can I unlock the hard drive


Hi, and welcome to TSG.

That would depend on the details and specifics about the hardware, operating system, and how the drive was locked; none of which you have shared with us.

In Windows XP if a user locked their pc I could simply unlock it using my user name and password because I am the network administrator. This does not seem to work in Windows 7. Is there some setting to return to the way it used to be in XP?

A:Unlock pc

unfortunately; i do not believe there is a way to do such a thing because windows 7 is pretty much a updated version of windows vista whereas xp was completely different in terms of the architecture of the operating system as vista and 7 I would say are more secure than xp by a long shot.

Hey guys, i'm currently running a system with a p4p800 se m/b and a p4 2.4Ghz proc. with 1.5gb of ddr 400 ram 2 X 512mb and 2 X 256mb. The problem i'm having is that, my bios sets my fsb at 133 and my ram speed to 266mhz, what i'd like to know is if there is a custom bios or something that can help me unlock the multiplier. I have overclocked my processor to 3.2Ghz and it's running cooler with my cpu cooler but that only pushes my ram to 333mhz. Can you help me?

A:P4 Cpu unlock?

P4s are multi locked. There are hardware hacks to unlock however I never recommend doing so.

If it is just that your ram speed increases and you do not want it to, just use a lower divider or ram speed. When you raise the fsb, it is back to where it should be.

I spilled something on mouse the other day and as a result I cannot right-click. Instead, I press shift and click. For some reason, lately, I have not been able to do this. I also notice that the function key is not doing anything and the F1-12 buttons work without it, as if the Fn is locked. Does anyone know how to change this back? I can't right click at all anymore and its kind of annoying.

I do have PC based on Gigabyte 970A-DS3P motherboard, I bought it already assembled, and out of the box it had this 3TB Hdd Unlock program installed. I would have to reinstall my system soon and I was wandering what exactly this software is for? What is it do? Will I need it when I'll reinstall my system or not really?

A:3TB Hdd Unlock

It's most likely intended to allow you to see and be able to use all of a large drive.

Windows can only see and utilize about 2.2 TB on a drive that is initialized as MBR. If you had a 3 or 4 TB drive, the portion above 2.2 would be useless and not even visible.

The standard way around that is to initialize as GPT, rather than MBR. GPT doesn't have that 2.2 TB limitation.

BUT--some motherboard manufacturers have provided downloadable software that can overcome the MBR limitation. It tricks Windows, so that you can see and use the portion above 2.2 TB. I'm not sure if it's usable on drives larger than 3 TB. I'm pretty sure that's what Gigabyte has provided to you in this case. I'd guess you have a 3 TB drive and the builder knew of the limitation, so used this special Gigabyte download.

It doesn't have anything to do with installing Windows per se. If your drives are under 2.2 TB you don't need it or if you can initialize the drive as GPT rather than MBR, you don't need it. Otherwise, you do need it, unless you don't care about not being able to use all of a large drive.

Q: unlock

my computer had a system recovery and i want to find out how to get all my stuff back from my hard drive disc D but it has a lock on it and it doesnt let me open it what do i do


what is the exact error message you're getting?

Read other 1 answers

I was running Windows 10 and there was some sort of error that forced my computer to shut down and restart. When it did, bitlocker was asking for a recovery key. I used the recovery key that is listed on my Microsoft account (I made sure that the key ID
matched the one displayed on the computer) but it said that the key was wrong. 
After attempting this a few times, I gave up and hit "skip this drive." Since then, that drive is completely locked.
Since my computer has two operating systems, the second being an old Vista install, the Vista started up. I used the command prompt (in Administrator mode) and ran the manage-bde -status command. 
the output was as follows
Volume G: [Label Unknown]
[Data Volume]
Size: Unknown GB
Conversion Status: Unknown
Percentage Encrypted: Unknown%
Encryption Method: Unknown
Protection Status: Protection Off
Lock Status: Locked
Automatic Unlock: Disabled
Key Protectors: None Found

I've tried to add a key protector, but it will not let me. I tried to unlock with manage-bde -unlock g: -recoverykey.
I tried to unlock using manage-bde -unlock g: -recoverypassword.
Nothing is working. I never lost my unlock password and I've tried using that too but it didn't work. 
I have even tried manage-bde -forcerecovery g: and get: ERROR: No recovery methods exist for Volume G:.
I tried to use manage-bde -protectors -add and got an error because it was locked. 
What is next?

You'll need a Windows 7 System Repair Disc or a Windows 7 installation DVD.

If I have a rar file I downloaded awhile back but it was password protected, is there any programs I can get for free that can unlock it for me?

A:Unlock Rar Files

Welcome to BC sko!

Well, there isnt really anyway that I know of to unlock a password protected Rar file. There are programs on the internet which say that can unlock Rar files, but I doubt they do what they really say. Also, if you know where you downlaoded the file from, maybe it says what the password is near the link etc.

EDIT: Actually, when I think about it I dont know if this topic is allowed because it involves cracking passwords.

i locked two of my disk drives with bit-locker encryption option in windows-7 , now i forget the password and recovery key to unlock my drives . Is there any way to unlock my drives ? or if i format the system can i able to unlock the drives without loosing the contents in it ?

A:Help me plz..... unlock bitlocker

From a Microsoft article about BitLocker:

When a local administrator initializes BitLocker, the administrator should also create a recovery password or a recovery key. Without a recovery key or recovery password, all data on the encrypted drive may be inaccessible and unrecoverable if there is a problem with the BitLocker-protected drive.

Source: BitLocker Drive Encryption Overview

But I also found another Microsoft article that may permit using a Data Recovery Agent.

Scenario 14: Using a Data Recovery Agent to Recover BitLocker-Protected Drives (Windows 7)

The problem is, drive encryption is supposed to be secure. It's supposed to make it difficult, if not impossible, to recover data. Otherwise, what's the point in using encryption if everybody can just hack their way in.

I have this extreme weird problem were my computer locked me out right after I restarted from a Iobit disk and registry defragmentation. When I booted back up it automatically showed me the (The user name or password is incorrect). It's kinda like it thinks I don't have a password so it auto logs me in and then for some reason I don't log in. I'm guessing the problem has something to to with the registry because I don't think defragmentation would cause this. Also I tried the Offline NT password reset program that you need to mount on a disk image and then run the pc with that in but even though the software said that it removed my password it still says I can't log in. I would really appreciate help because I spent a lot of money for a person my age on an expensive pc.
