    :

    Hi
    I have western digital my passport ultra 2 TB with WD Security.. It is locked now and not accepting password.. Can i remove password from it without loosing my data ????

    • sales@dolphindatalab.com

      :

      WD passport drive has two kind of encryption modes:

      Self encryption and third-party encryption such as smartware. So you need to find out which encryption your drive has now. Our tool supports direct password removal or bypass, but not supporting smartware encryption yet.

    sir, can u pls help me unlock password on my toshiba sata hard drive

    • sales@dolphindatalab.com

      :

      Hello Friend, you can purchase our DFL-SRP USB3.0 for Toshiba/Fujitsu but if you just use our tool to unlock one hdd, this is not cost-effective, common soft cannot do this job.

    would this work on seagate sata drives?
    if so may i please have a quote

    thank you

    • sales@dolphindatalab.com

      Hello Friend, the WD tool doesn’t work for Seagate but our DFL-SRP USB3.0 for Seagate works on both Seagate SATA and IDE hard drives.

    Hi, Dolphin.Data.Lab,

    Chanced upon your website as I was doing research on how to recover data from my WD My Passport external hard disk (USB 3.0). Would greatly appreciate if you could recommend any of your products to help me recover my data. Thanks!!

    • sales@dolphindatalab.com

      :

      As for your WD USB drive, there’re two options:

      1, DFL-FRP for WD can help to fix your case and get your data back with data recovery software;
      2, DFL-URE USB3.0 data recovery equipment connect your WD USB drive directly and get the data back.

      But before we recommend the best option to you, can you confirm if you recover only one drive with our tools? If that, it’s not cost-effective to you. Please tell us where you are from and we will introduce one local data recovery service supplier to you with our tools.

      If you are starting one data recovery business, our tools are very cost-effective then, because you just need to finish several cases, you get your investment back.

      Besides, Please tell us more about your HDD failure symptoms to help decide the best tool for you.

    • sales@dolphindatalab.com

    • sales@dolphindatalab.com

      :

      It’s easy to fix the smart problem with DFL-FRP for WD, you can reset smart or you can even replace the smart modules.

  15. brutuss100@aol.com

    :

    Does your tool recover/decrypt encrypted data on an external HDD (My Book) due to PCB firmware/VCD chip failure on the interface board?

    • sales@dolphindatalab.com

      :

      Hello Sir, if it’s default hardware encryption, this can be solved, if it’s third-party software encryption, then no way. If just the physical interface damage, you can find one donor PCB of the same PCB number and try. If the ROM chip is burnt, you need to manage to regenerate the ROM. So your drive needs further diagnosed, sir.

    :

    Greetings from Norway
    After being very lucky for more then five years with all my Apple computers, Laptop’s and all other Apple devices – one of our MacBook Pro with a Toshiba mk5055GSXF HDD did stop, whilst a phone call – being actually in idle state. Alarming click sounds did emerge suddenly and after restart, no no boot up was possible at all. Waiting tonight and cool down, startup again – same symptom.
    DiscWarrior from a Startup disc did show a perfect drive at first after drive test – but without any file-structure or any files to recover – Second try: No hard drive emerged at all. So it might be a hardware failure in i/o controller, the read/write heads, the usual parking stuff…. or whatever… I did often discover this on so many Win PC before 2009, as a former IT Engineer.
    I did all recovery in my old company without thinking about it will cost me any money during all the years.
    But after we did start up a nonprofit organisation and working with traumatized people after Tsunami and Earthquake’s or War around our World, we have now less money, but now we have to pay mind-boggeling prices for simple recovery services some of them real fantasy prices. Most of this companies just taking advantage of peoples desperate loss of data, and raise their prices to criminal hights. People pay for their own subjective value of data, not for the ridicules little work spent, to recover the data.

    I heart from our contacts, your company does have human prices and good tools to recover data, also on Apple computers. This is why we contact you guys.
    We have some backup on this particular Laptop, but when traveling in rural areas, we are not able to do regularly backup, back at home and lots of addresses, valuable data and pictures to peoples insurance companies they need to get their life back. Death lists we should send to WHO and data from local authorities are lost, when we give up a recovery, because of unrealistic high prices.

    Prices for short work a computer does, whilst a person does other stuff and just let the computer transfer the data to another HardDrive.
    I will do it by my self and perhaps use the Repair Tool just one or twice more in my life, but this is about human destenies and families who have lost their love ones. So it is worth it in every single case I guess. It may not be valuable to us in the West, but valuable for every single family. Perhaps we can affort your recovery tools and we can continue doing our job.

    So my Questions again:
    1. Is there any chance to recover Data from a Toshiba mk5055GSXF HDD in a Apple environment?
    2. How much will this Hardware cost for us?
    3. Do you have perhaps tools used as Demonstration equipment on trade shows?
    It will be fantastic

    Kindest Regards
    From Norway

      Dear Sir,

      Thank you very much for your questions.
      For one single drive, we don’t recommend our tools and our tools are mainly used for commercial purposes, otherwise, they are not cost-effective for you for single case.

      As for your drive, it’s possible to recover the data, can you tell us where you are from so that we may introduce our reseller for more localized and professional support to you.

      Any comments are welcome.
