I was given a Lacie drive that is encrypted and merely
want to erase, reformat, and use as an BU external.
how does one do that?
Use Disk Utility, I believe it has options for all of that.
Yeah, thought of DU too. The HD won't mount without the password. Other ideas?
the answer is simpler than thought.
the Lacie has two internal 2.5" drives, remove both and change
the order- bottom to top. Disk Utilities will then initialize both disks.
