I have been using a LaCie external disk for years (may be 6 or 7 years) without any problems.

Suddenly, since yesterday it happens that I cannot open it. NO PERMISSION.

I went to get info to try and unlock it. I enter with my administrator password. But noway to unlock.

The icon lways appears with a lock on it and I did not find any possibilities to unlock it to recover some data that I save on it.


Somebody to help me.
