✔ Best Answer
Although there are numerous sites explaining how to remove a HDD password, it's highly unlikely any of them will work. The password is a security measure put in place by the USER. In other words, *someone* put that password in place, it didn't just magically appear. The password is stored on a chip on the HDD & many times it's also stored on a chip on the motherboard. If the HDD is removed & a new one installed, the motherboard will lock the new HDD. Also, the password will prevent the removed HDD from being read on another system.

To remove the password, you need to know the password. If you didn't create it, who did? That's the person you should be asking. You can try contacting Toshiba but I doubt they will help. I found this note on their site:

If you forget your HDD User Password, TOSHIBA will NOT be able to assist you, and your HDD will be rendered COMPLETELY and PERMANENTLY INOPERABLE. TOSHIBA will NOT be held responsible for any loss of data, any loss of use or access to your HDD, or for any other losses to you or any other person or organization resulting from the loss of access to your HDD.
If you can not accept these conditions, do not registere the HDD User Password.
