Can I recover files after format via any Recovery program?

NO.
Do NOT format.

Better to try and remember password. If you format, then the key changes and the data is lost. Now you have a chance.

How does one format a Passport drive that is protected by a SmartWare password?

I understand that after 5 incorrect password attempts you are given the option of erasing the drive and its password, but that's a different thing.


That's what I meant.
If someone agrees to the prompts to format the drive after unsuccessful password entries, then it's game over.
