Data Recovery and Computer Services in Phuket, Thailand

Removing Hard Disk Passwords

Almost all modern notebooks have the option to lock the notebook and it's hard drive with a password.
If the pasword is lost, hard disk data cannot be accessed by the user. The HDD password is stored on the disk itself and cannot be bypassed by placing the disk into another computer.

We offer the service to remove unknown Master and User hard drive Password without data loss, even when hdd is locked on Maximum Security level. Note what this service makes sense for data recovery purposes only, as the price (usually $120 + shipping costs) is higher than the price of a brand-new hard disk of most models. Many people buy a second-hand hard drive on eBay very cheap only to find out later what the drive is locked with password. Buyers beware!

Partial list of the hard drives we can remove password from follows; please do not hesitate to ask about other brands and models!
