Anyone know how to crack an ATA PW? I got a "This drive is locked by ATA password", using MHDD.

You can't.

If you do not have the password to unlock this drive then you'll need to get a new drive

As said, you can't.  You may be able to remove the password, but this will also make the data unrecoverable.

If you want to destroy the drive, Drill 3 holes through it with a power drill.

I think you are correct. It is hard to delete a partition that does not exist. It does seem to be in use a lot for one that does not exist.  Ya think i could hit it with a drill or will i get error 404. I think i may name my next chld Kerberos.
