Windows 7: Cannot login to Lacie network space

08 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional (x64/SP1) /Linux Mint 16
Cannot login to Lacie network space

(Warning: I have had this disk for 2 years now and all it has given me is problems, please avoid all Lacie network products, I have had TWO of these and the second one disallowing login.)
I try to login it disallows me, am not sure why no one has changed it. I never have forgotten its password. I have tried to reset it using the reset method and 3 times I have done it and still nothing.

"Switch the drive OFF. Wait for the drive to power down. If it does not power down within two minutes, unplug the drive from power, then reconnect it.
Switch the drive ON. After about three seconds, flip the power switch to the OFF position, then ON again.
If the light on the front quickly pulses, the drive is now reset to its factory settings. The data is unaffected by this procedure."

(Login is admin). Passwords I have tried. password, admin, 1234, (nothing) and all my own passwords and nothing happens. I also have tried contacting support and they redirect me to the same page I find there "solutions" very vauge and unsupportive.

Does anyone have any ideas as am stuck trying to login to my own drive, any help appreciated. Do note I can access the normal partition but I cannot login to my drive or its pass worded partition.

I solved it by thinking. I tried changed my password to a usual one which is 17 characters long but its maxium was 15. I thought it reset it to default but it deducts characters from the previous password. (set the password as aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa). It will remove 1 letter and it will set that to your password without warning as the max is 15 characters and the password was 16 letters.

Do realize I thought it never changed the password as it didn't accept the length so I thought it would be the default password.
