Hello i have an old WD MyBook World (MDL: WD40000H2NC) Which i have setup ages (and a few computers) ago to store a back up of my work. I have long since forgotten the admin password and user name, but can get the work off it. I want to use it to automatically backup the archive folders i've setup using crashplan (if theres a better program i'm open to suggestions).
So my question is is it easy to reset the admin password / enable a factory reset or is it worth re-purposing it (wiping and hacking)? I'd rather do it now that i have the time, and not when something goes wrong farther down the line and end up with no admin access.
The system is windows 7, but i also have a ubuntu 11.10 HTPC i can use if need be.
