Samsung PM981a - HDD password

Postby MichalPtak » 15.06.21, 13:50

I have a Samsung M.2 PM981a drive - in the laptop it asks me for the HDD password. In PC3K, after switching on, it is still in the BSY state. Is it possible to reset the disk password and recover data?

Hello Michal,

Sorry for bad news, but this drive is not supported. Starting from the Samsung 850 EVO, Samsung company completely lock the internal firmware modification and techno mode options. Right now without a digital signature, we can't influence on such drives without compatible Utility..
Our developers are working on it, but I'm afraid that solution will not be released in the nearest time.

List of supported SSD you can find here: ... dated.html
