I have a Samsung M3 portable 1TB HDD that is running under

Resolved Question:

I have a Samsung M3 portable 1TB HDD that is running under the Secure Drive and Secret Zone programs that came configured on the drive.
It used to run OK, but now I can't get it unlocked. The Secret Zone program runs but gives this following logged message:
"Failed to connect the Secure Drive".
"Cannot open the Secure Drive device. This message appears when the Secret Zone service program is not running properly."
Windows updated to ie11 recently - would that have changed something that would make the secure software incompatible?
How can I get at the data on the portable HDD now that it's encrypted and the Secure Zone program isn't unlocking it?
Thanks...
