I own a USB Prestigio pocket hard disk 40GB, that has a password protection. It has 2 visible partitions, 20mb each ( public and AP ) on the AP partition is the autorun for the security. The drive has been set on the "safer" mode - meaning that it is not so wonerable to disconnect without "safe to disconnect" rutine.
Even so, I guess the forcible ejection must have damaged or corrupted the autorun file ( even though it is write protected ) so I cannot get the program to start and unlock the drive.
I have a lot of important stuff on the hdd, and I dont care about the disk itself - I just want the data back.
Is there a way around this? I can't attempt to fix the autorun because it is write protected, and without it - I can't unlock the hdd.
Any suggestions and opinions are welcome,
