Actually it was me who laughed a lot when I read you comment here #p134544 . And I cannot see what was wrong with my comment I said I am sure it is doable and it is just a matter of time to know how it works, probably you do not understand english?.
Of course It is up to you to read my comments or not, but I wanted to give you an advice from a more experienced engineer, do not dismiss things out of hand unless you know what you are talking about. Anyway good luck with your late findings.


Open your eyes, and look @ the date stamp , i dono who cannot read ENGLISH here, me or you

Do you mean to say Unlock.exe reads sector with encryption keys from the back of the drive? So it's actually transfered via USB to Unlock.exe and Unlock.exe decides to open the drive or not?

Repair is likely not possible. Data recovery by certain experts maybe.

It probably tricks unlock.exe into mounting the partition. I believe that the partition will still be encrypted therefore worthless. Or maybe I am wrong?

Yes einstein9's way tricks the smartware unlock.exe software in to reading his known password & then mounts the partition. The partition will then be decrypted as the key is stored in the SA. Like other members here that can bypass the WD Smartware password (including me :D ), just the method might be different & take longer than einstein9 software method.

I am quite sure there is GREAT misunderstood with this: {bypass the WD Smartware password}
Because bypassing "selflocked drive" and locked with real user password is a big difference.

Did you forget the password if one was ever set up? Or is the drive damaged in a matter that is preventing you from unlocking it?
