Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. For DVR systems, the manufacturer usually is the one to appeal to, to do the password ***** (sometimes, remotely.)If all you have is the hard drive, then that's simple - if you just want to use it as a hard drive. Reformat it. That will clear it out, I think.

Mate, that answer certainly isn't worth the £22 I paid. What you have told me I already knew. I read on forums that the hard drive I have does have an engineers password ***** will allow me to override the password ***** is set and to out a new one in. I don't just have the hard drive, I have the complete dvr. Now, does anybody on here have the info I require, because I am not paying £22 for generic information

I have not heard of an engineer password ***** this hard drive, so I have Opted Out in favor of an Expert who might know. With apologies....
