How to remove a Travelstar HDD password

There are numerous different applications that allow users to password protect their hard drives, including Travelstar hard drives. If you’ve forgotten or don’t know the master password, you’re pretty much out of luck when it comes to removing the password. The only thing that will work, regardless of the encryption application, is reformatting the Travelstar drive. Instructions
Open the Windows Start menu and select “Control Panel”.

Select “System and Maintenance” > “Administrative Tools” > “Computer Management”.

Select “Storage” > “Disk Management”.

Right-click the Travelstar password-protected hard drive. Connect the drive to the computer if necessary. Select “Format….”

Click “OK” > “OK” to start formatting the hard drive. Optionally, you can define the file system format, volume name and disk capacity (in megabytes) . Once the process is complete, the unit will be accessible without a password.
