Have a QNAP TS453 Pro now just over three years old, most of that time spent in a rarely visited spare bedroom/storeroom. NAS has four 6TB WB Red disks in it, one of which has developed problems (just past the 3 year warranty limit of course!).
Bought new replacement disk and went to install it, then realised that required a key to remove the faulty one. Alas, have no idea where the key ended up. Have searched all the likely places to no avail. Seems likely it was left in the original packaging but have not yet found any trace of the packing (quite possibly ended up in the recycling at some point).
Is there a non-damaging way of replacing the faulty key without the key?
