Hi All,

I have a WD Sentinel DX4000 NAS.  I forgot the password.  There isn’t any data on it.  How do I remove the password or change the password or what ever it takes to access the NAS.

Thanks in advance.

Was a password reset disk made? http://bit.ly/12cueNP

If not, then you need to use the recovery disk to re-install the OS: http://bit.ly/13pVw9C

Thank you for the quick response!
My coworker had the password written down.  I got lucky!!! :)
I just joined the NAS to the domain so the password should not be an issue anymore.

Thanks again!
