Vagabond,

You should be able to go in via the file system to get your data. (Iie. \\172.17.15.4\backups). Try this first to get your data.

Next. There is no hack for one of these boxes. These require a password and if you can remember try the default as many people never change them.

This is from Iomegas site.


I forgot my password

If the system administrator forgets the password, backup all data on the server and then contact Iomega technical support. This is not covered by the warranty. There is no reset password feature for the Administrator account, which means all data on the server will be lost in order to recover the server. The factory assigned password for Administrator is ADMIN (uppercase). Make note of any changes to the Administrator password as you will need it in the future to access and make changes to the Iomega NAS.

There are several things you can do to reduce the risk of forgetting your password and minimize the impact of a forgotten password.

Create a secondary administrator account. Remember your password!

Back up the data on all shares frequently.

If you forget your Administrator password, log on as a user that has access to the data and back it up before you contact Iomega.
