I've read many people on the web complaining about My book drives having some kind of encryption, that creates a situation that if your drive case fails, the hard drive cannot be taken out of the case, mounted in a desktop and files retrieved. Does this 10TB My Book have this same ecryption issue?
Asked by: Ken
If a password to encrypt the drive is not set by the user, then the drive would not be encrypted. If a password is set, then the encryption would be doing its job at that point, in disallowing access from an external physical source.
