a. Connect the WD external drive to a PC computer

b. Install the WD Smartware software came with it.

c. go to SETTINGS, the far right tap.

d. click on DRIVE SETTINGS.

e. select SECURITY, enter your old password and just hit enter instead of enter the new password.

That would erase the password from the drive.
