I have a Verbatim flash drive that I do not know my password for. Most of my searching for a solution has led to me to answers like "take the loss and reformat the drive" (losing all encrypted data). The V-SAFE100.exe on the drive allows you to access your hidden-encrypted partition.
However, I thought someone here might find it to be an interesting experiment to try and bypass the V-SAFE100 encryption program (direct link http://www.verbatim.com/includes/binary_details.php3?show=1&id=2960 ), and at the same time, give me a solution that doesn't forfeit my data. The idea would be to NOP the password comparison. According to this article on pg. 62, (http://content.yudu.com/Library/A1rc91/Hakin9201001/resources/62.htm ) it should be possible. I'm just too new to IDA and OllyDBG to do it myself. Any takers?
Also, I realize that I might not be able to copy and paste a fixed version of the program, but I should be able to replicate the process for my drive's program.
