Overview HDD Unlock is an application that can remove a hard disk drive password for IDE and SATA drives where the user has forgotten their security password. Whether either a user password or a master password has been set for the hard drive, both can be removed safely from the affected drive. The HDD Unlock wizard takes the user through their self-explanatory software wizard process in order to safely unlock a hard drive. The drive will need to be erased when unlocked and then re-certified to be used again in the future. The package not only works with Windows desktop 3.5 inch drives, but it can also access 2.5 inch laptop drives, and X-Box drives. The following hard drive manufacturers are known to be supported with this application: Seagate, Toshiba, Western Digital, Fujitsu, Maxtor and Samsung.
