I was just wondering. Because I've got a nice 120 gig hard drive in a modded box that got banned from XBL. So there's no point in ever turning off my modchip, and therefore no point in having it locked anymore. But I'd kind of like to leave it locked so it will function with the chip off. No real reason, it's one of those "just because" things.

But here's what I'm worried about: What if a crazy dude escapes from his padded room and totally smashes up my box, leaving only the awesome hard drive intact? If it's locked, will it be possible use it again in a PC or something? It would be nice to keep some of the files on it, but it's not that big of a deal.

If there's no way to recover a locked hard drive, then I'll unlock it now and just leave the chip on all the time. Just in case... ph34r.gif

make sure you get the HDD key via the "backup" in evox (and other apps can do this also)

then you can unlock it via a PC.

I still have that from when I first switched the hard drives. I guess I can leave it locked then. Thanks for the info. That crazy guy can kiss my ass!
