I have a Hard Drive that a friend gave to me, but it is locked. I understood that this means I do not have direct access to applications.
The basic issue is that I need to recover some files from it, but since it is locked, I don't know how to do this.
Can you help me to unlock it or tell me how can I recover data from locked Hard Disk?
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
