HDD Lock on my new 1TB Eaget External Harddisk

Asked By 130 points N/A Posted on -

I recently added a new 1TB HDD to my computer and my list of drives show the Eaget and a list of other devices with removable storage. I have noticed that one of them is indicated as ‘CD Drive EAGET’. If I click on this, it gives me a list with Autorun, Eaget icon, HD lock app and a HD lock image. I thing HD lock is a kind of harddisk encryption that needs a key to make it work. This is good but also very bad if it I lose the key, therefore, i do not need it in my computer. Is there any way that I can delete the four items on the removable storage list? By doing so, would I cause any problems?

Hello,

Your external HDD is manufactured by Eaget and it contains a default partition for storing the “HD Lock” app. This could be removed but might be risky.

1. Start an elevated Command Prompt.

2. Run the following command:

diskpart
list disk
select disk #

Where # indicates the disk number of your external HDD.

3. Then, keep on running these commands:
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
active
format fs=ntfs quick
assign
exit

Now, your HDD will be totally wiped and will have a single place for storing data.
