My nephew gave me his old WD My Book Essential (I Think) has white lights and is 1 TB. But he forgot his password and wants some of the stuff off before I wipe clean. Is there any software that will recover the password from a hard drive or a usb external drive. Tried oph cracks but all it does is admin passwords. Any ideas. Would I be able to update the firmware if so would I lose all data?
