Man oh man. I seem to have a strain of unfortunate events and complications.

After my main hard drive crashed, I am attempting to restore whatever I had backed up almost a year ago. (Don't ask.) My backup choice was Maxtor One Touch III Mini 80 gig version. I remember password-protecting it. Now, after reinstalling it's support software, "One Touch" (outside the drive), I don't see the drive. In device manager it shows it and it says that the device is working properly. However, I do not see it on My Computer. Also, the One Touch software when I click restore, it takes me to Program Files directory, rather than opening the drive. Can someone help me please. It is possible I hid the drive using it's options, but I doubt it. I do know password. So what can I do. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

If it will help, here is ISO for One Touch. ftp://ftp.seagate.com/outgoing/stxsupp/ma...LY_CD-Image.iso

Problem seems to be solved. I have unlocked it. This topic can be closed.


Update: I unlocked it by using another PC. I installed the software, while drive was plugged in. While restarting Windows, after install I got command prompt if I want to unlock password-protected drive.
