Freecom network drive password

  grumpy-git 08 Feb 08

Have just installed the software for the network drive on what will now be the main pc. Following the setup instructions to use admin & admin for user name & password, everything worked fine & I could map & remove the drive.

Problem is, I cannot access it via the web interface, it will not accept admin/admin as password, or the password/username I had allocated when it was in use with the previous pc.

Is there any way to access or change the password?

From Freecom Website.

Press the „Reset“ button and power on device while pressing the „Reset“ button. Keep
„Reset“ button pressed for 15 seconds to restore factory defaults.

Thanks MCE2K5,

I wasn't sure if "reset" wiped everything off the drive & so hadn't tried that. With nearly 300gb of data on there (it's a 500gb drive) it was a risky thing to try.

Do you know if the data will be safe if I reset?

Yes your Data will be fine.

It does not Format ypur Drive, It just resets the Drives Settings.

Sorted, thanks for your help, the data was untouched.

Thinking out loud here.... if it's so easy for anyone to reset the password, what's the point of having a password facility?
