The iOmega Home Meda what?

network drive

You can reset it, but you will lose all information on the drive.
Reset the drive to the factory defaults by holding the power button down until the drive activity light flashes red. Once the drive activity light returns to solid blue, run iOmega Discovery Tool again that came with it.
Once you run that software, you will be able to set it up again.

I think it was a mistake

The rating can be upgraded.
How do you wish to continue?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

can you help me bypass the password/username?

I wish that there was a way to do that; however, there is not.
iOmega locked it down that way to protect your data from others.
If the password ***** ***** the only thing that can be done is to erase and start over.

Thank you for your help. It has not reached what I would have expected. I think that this is not your problem.

I do not have control over what the iOmega engineers decided when they built this device.
If I had control, I would unlock it for you.
