    Remove HDD Password from Samsung 850 Evo M.2 (SATA) SSD


      Hey Everyone,


      lately I bought a used Intel NUC6i5SYK with a included SSD. The seller said that he activated but later lost the HDD password. So  now I have a NUC with a wonderful fast SSD but can't use it unless I buy a new SSD.

      Is there a way to remove the password? I don't need any of the data on the SSD. I already tried Samsung Magician but it only tells me that Class-0-Security is actuated an a SecureErase is not possible.


      I hope someone is able to help me.

      Best regards!
