Hard disk drive passwords

Your computer comes with a program preinstalled that lets you set two types of hard disk drive passwords, user and master. These passwords protect your primary and secondary hard disks as follows:

Setting a hard disk drive user password prevents an unauthorized user from accessing your hard disk, even if it is removed and installed on another computer. This password does not encrypt data on the hard disk.

Setting a hard disk drive master password lets you bypass the hard disk drive user password and access your hard disk, in case you forget the hard disk drive user password.

If you choose to set a hard disk drive master password, you should set it before you set a hard disk drive user password.

HINT: The hard disk drive shipped with your computer may not support the master password feature. When you attempt to set master password protection, your computer may alert you that this feature is not supported by your drive. If this happens and you want to establish a master password for your hard disk, contact your network administrator for instructions.

Setting a hard disk drive master password

If you choose to set a hard disk drive user password, we strongly recommend that you set a hard disk drive master password as well.

If you set a hard disk drive user password and later forget the password or lose your password diskette, YOU WILL NEVER

BE ABLE TO ACCESS YOUR HARD DISK AGAIN, unless you’ve set a hard disk drive master password.

Toshiba is not responsible for any losses that may occur to you, your organization or others as a result of the inability to access the hard drive.
