  • Re: Satellite L300D - HARD drive with unknown password recovery?

    I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite L300D of second hand to a colleague and went on to restore its framework Moose per HARD drive recovery according to the guide of Toshiba
    Link: [http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9102IR0000R01.htm]

    I get to part 3 and find a current user name, to which the previous owner has no knowledge of, or a password in order to continue the process. Does this mean that the previous owner has locked the recovery process or there at - it a way to recover the system without the password?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated


    Theoretically, you could ask the colleague to the password ;)
    HARD drive recovery is possible if you know the password, otherwise everyone could perform HARD drive recovery and would not be without danger.

    Alternative, you can use the Toshiba recovery disc. It will be the same as the drive HARD recovery, factory settings will be restored too.
