i have 10gb harddisk which has a password on how do i remove it kindly assist
You contact the hard drive manufacturer or a data recovery company.
ATA hard drive passwords are implemented inside the hard drive itself and AFAIK there are no easy and publicly known reset mechanisms.
if this is a hdd password set by bios for laptops do search here long explanation and links that might fix it
if it's a xp or W2K password for files you need to boot to that OS and use the password or get a app like winternals to reset there are free app that may seen to erase password
but the encrypted files still need password and you just messed it all up
winternals resets password
PM for data recovery
