Hey peeps, Any way to unlock a Toshiba SSD THNSN8960PCSE on maximum security. Just inherited 2 of these that were being chucked out at my work place but no one knows any of the passwords. Any help would be much appreciated.

There is a command table at the end of this doc: http://www.hammer-drive.com/assets/uplo ... r/HK4R.pdf
May help you.

The ATA Sanitize Device command (B4h) may work under certain conditions.

ATA Command Set - 4 (ACS-4):
http://t13.org/Documents/UploadedDocuments/docs2017/di529r18-ATAATAPI_Command_Set_-_4.pdf

Seagate's SeaChest Utilities support the Sanitize command. I expect that non-Seagate drives would be supported as well.

DO you know where I can get hold of SeaChest Utilities? It's proving a bit hard hard to find.

Many thanks for your help.

Many thanks for that. I managed to download it. I've been trying to unlock the drives all morning without success. Many of the commands come up with "Erase functions are only allowed on Seagate products".

Is there another way to send the sanitize commands?

Thanks again
